Charity umbrella changes

As you can see on my PLANTATION PROJECT page in the menu above, I have discontinued my support for the project.

The institution itself becomes privatized starting April 2014, which means that they are no longer limited by how public-sector institutions are allowed to fund their activities. I'm not going to go into legalese specifics, but their opportunities for allocating existing budgets, and raising extra funds will be vastly improved, and I feel that their staff, board members and parent base should be able to lift that burden on their own.

I still keep my "Android money" separate from my personal income, and I am looking at other worthy causes to support - but for the sake of honesty and transparency towards donators and supporters, I'd feel weird not disclosing that I do longer support this particular project.
