For the Students We have selected 56 students of which 13 are local – no air tickets We had budgeted an average of 700 Euros for the air ticket for students not in Ghana. We have expected 55 such students but now we will have 43. We have +8,400 Euros but air tickets will get more expensive if we do not buy them soon (as we get to close to the summer)! We will reserve this surplus for the likely increase in air ticket costs. We have budgeted 50 Euros per day per student for student living expenses. – Breakfast, lunch and dinner for the students – Originally 70 students. Originally 20 days. Thus 70 kEuros. – Now we have 56 students for 25 days. 49 kEuros according to the LOCs recent estimate. We expect to save +21 kEuros here! 3
For the lecturers We expect to pay the travel and accommodations for 8 lecturers + 2 organizers at the rate of 700 Euros. Thus 7 kEuros. The original budget was 18,200 Euros for 26 lecturers and organizers. We save +11,200 Euros here. All other lecturers agreed to cover transportation and living expenses from other sources Living expenses – Breakfast is included in the hotel price – Lunch is provided for the lecturers as well but no dinner! – We had budgeted 15,128 Euros. According the recent LOCs estimate 12,692 Euros. We save +2435.69 Euros 4
Revised Estimates Compared to the original budget, based on the reduced number of students, the limited number of lectures for whom we have pay, and the more accurate estimates from the LOC: – We expect to save about 34 kEuros However! – We are still missing 10 kEuros – There are 20 kEuros to come from Within Ghana that we do not expect anymore Conclusions – If we can collect all the pledges and promised supports, we will just break even. We have 8,400 + 4,000 ~ 12 kEuros towards increased in air tickets – If we can raise the missing 10 kEuros, that will be used for contingencies … 5
