About Us

Charity Foundation “Borani” (“Ferryboat”) was established by the “Society For Promotion Of Literacy” in 2012.

Name of the foundation derives from its function, which aims at connecting of different banks of the river. Foundation itself does not possess any financial means to be distributed to the persons in need following the decision of the administration. Borani’s task is to connect those seeking aid with the persons who can provide it.     

Foundation pursues the following goals:

  • to create links between different segments of the society;
  • to aid persons in need in solving of their problems;
  • to connect persons in need with those who can provide aid and support development of established communication;
  • to disseminate idea of philanthropy and encourage moulding of a charity culture. 
  • Foundation uses its website as a main tool for operations. It publishes on its page information about different persons and their needs. Any user is eligible to transfer amount of his choice to a specific project in order to solve the named problem. After accumulation of the needed sum, The Society For Promotion Of Literacy will purchase the needed object and deliver it to the project beneficiary. Photos as well as entire package of procurement documents concerning the completed project is published on the website.
