Our Goals and Values
Our Guiding Principles – ‘The Way We Work’
In order to achieve our goals, it is important to understand the way we work. Our work is guided by:
Strong Partnerships – we take a participatory approach with our program leaders, donors and all our partners (no matter the level/segment) to, in partnership with them, work to deliver the outcomes needed most.
Empowerment – we aim to make a difference; to engage and empower the people effected by our Program Priorities where we want to make a change - to make sure a change is made and sustained.
A long-term view – we are committed to building long-term capacity in each of our Program Priorities, our individual projects and across the communities in which we operate.
Respect – we are cognisant of internal and external cultural and social sensitivities and are inclusive and respectful of the people we work with.
Value – we monitor our programs/projects to ensure they are evidence-based and relevant, cost effective and delivered efficiently.
Excellent governance – we have robust internal processes and governance and work diligently with partners to safeguard monies that are entrusted to us. We hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards.
Independence – we are a secular not-for-profit organisation, with no political or religious affiliations, goals or policies.
