VALUES

We espouse the following eight values, which we believe are crucial to achieving transformation:

  • A focus on strategic Initiatives in order to shift from a culture of poverty to a culture of prosperity
  • A clear Intention of our strategy and areas of engagement
  • A focused strategy for our Intervention
  • Purposefully designed strategies to address the ‘Power Versus Influence’ challenge that often strangles development
  • The use of Intelligence in solutions, to address the issues we seek to solve
  • Innovative approaches to donor fund management, which seek to go above and beyond ‘the norm’
  • Quantitative measurement of the Impact of our interventions
  • Integrity when dealing with donors and the community.

These eight values, which we seek to implement in all four of our focus areas, underpin our core objective – to inspire a Nation of Active Citizens.
