HOW WE OPERATE – TWO ORGANIZATIONS; ONE MINISTRY
Since Rivoni is located both in South Africa and Mozambique, we are each registered as non-profit organizations with each of the two governments under whose jurisdiction we resort:
- Rivoni Ministries (South Africa) is registered with the Registrar of Non-Profit Organizations: reg. no. 055-268-NPO(RSA).
- Rivoni Ministries, Mozambique is registered as: Ministerio Luz de Mocambique – certifico que no Livro “A”, folhas 175 de Registo das Organizacoes Religiosas.
Rivoni Ministries (South Africa) raises funds for itself as well as for Rivoni Mozambique by doing deputation work and by taking groups of interested supporters to see the work done in Mozambique. Some 90% of donations received are channeled to Mozambique. Yearly financial statements are compiled by Messrs Jurie van Rensburg, Professional Accountants, Nelspruit SA. After having been inspected by the Rivoni Board, they are submitted to the Department of social Welfare.
Copies of all financial accounts kept by Rivoni, Mozambique are submitted to Rivoni South Africa within 5 days after the last day of each month where they are scrutinized, queried if necessary, and then filed. The Lord has thus far graciously kept watch over our finances so that we have not lost any funds entrusted to our care.
The director of Rivoni, South Africa is stationed at Pretoria. The retired director of Rivoni, South Africa, is responsible for writing or procuring the study guides used in Mozambique.
You are welcome to invite us to your church, or house group to tell you more about our ministry.
A bi-monthly newsletter is compiled to keep supporters and interested persons informed of what is happening in the Mission.
Rivoni Ministries is not carried financially by any church or other organization, but is funded by voluntary donations. We operate solely on a cash basis and are altogether free of debt. The Director is not receiving a salary or any other benefits, but the African staff are paid monthly allowances, providing that sufficient funds are available. They are also provided with housing and their monthly expenses relating to their ministries are met.
Your donation/s will be sincerely appreciated for it will enable us to keep this ministry going and to expand to new districts. Please advise us should you have made a deposit that we may, in addition to receiving it, have the joy of saying “Thank you.” Our bank details are as follows:
