Our Core Values

Our actions are guided by the following values:

TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY

Stay accountable to the people we support, and to those who support our work. We strive to act in a way that is open and transparent.

GENDER EQUITY

Implement programs that are gender sensitive, taking into account the roles of women and men. Our programs will also aim to address power imbalances between men and women.

RESPECT FOR THE VOICE OF THE VULNERABLE

Hear and respect the voices of women, children and young people, who must be supported to participate in decision-making and programming on issues that affects their lives, so they can access and shape their future.

EVIDENCE BASED PROGRAMING

Ensure that programming and policy efforts are driven by evidence of what works and acceptable to communities. This includes actively learning from experiences, adapting programs to suit different needs and influencing national and global policy accordingly.

QUALITY SERVICE DELIVERY

Ensure that programmatic and technical support are of high quality and delivered by well-trained and professional support providers with appropriate skills, a capacity-building approach and a sympathetic understanding of those they seek to support.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Enable communities, including the most vulnerable and marginalized people, play a central role in the global response to social and physical health. We believe the most successful responses to health are built on local leadership, commitment and responsibility, and are supported by knowledge, learning and resources drawn from local and external sources. Communities need knowledge and resources to respond effectively in improving their health and developmental needs and to claim their human rights.
