Charity Due Diligence

I am thinking about sending 25 Euro a month to this charity
(German language site), in order to provide schooling to one child in Kenya. How do I best check that this is a legit deal?

This is a private initiative. They have apparently founded a school and the money goes specifically towards the schooling expenditures of one child (uniforms, lunches + teachers' salaries etc). They also make sure that children who benefit from the program actually attend classes and they don't have a lot of overhead.
This kind of charity something that I've been wanting to do for years and I feel quite strongly about. I am also quite impressed with their information policy which seems a lot better than organisations like Plan or WorldVision. But I don't want to be scammed or do more harm than good. What should I be paying attention to?
