In Kitabna we respect financial transparency in our partners in the humanitarian field. In 2015, Kitabna was registered as a non-profit business in the United Kingdom and pays income tax on all proceeds. By adopting a "non-profit" business model, we aim to safeguard both the integrity of our vision and the creative process by remaining an independent publishing initiative.
In the financial year 2015/16, this was a breakdown of our funds and spending.
