Our Core Values.
We are committed to Jesus Christ in all that we do, and in all that we are as people and as an organization.
We are committed to the Bible – seeking to be obedient to its teaching, and evaluating what we do and how we do it in its light.
We are committed to prayer – We are committed to bringing before God the needs of communities, our partners and the Church with whom we work.
Our Guiding Principles
We follow Jesus who came in humility ‘not to be served but to serve’, the path to true leadership. We empower the poor by placing control in their hands and not overpowering them with outside resources or expertise.
Creativity and Innovation
We value the creativity and innovation that our partners, our colleagues, our volunteers and our donors bring in helping to find positive, creative and innovative solutions to hard and complex situations.
We are a small piece of the bigger picture of what God is doing in building His Kingdom around the world and in the communities we serve. We are therefore delighted to work in partnership with others who share our purpose and sense of mission.
Transparency and Accountability
We hold ourselves accountable to the people we serve as well as to the rest of our stakeholders.
The resources at our disposal are not our own. We demand of ourselves high standards of professional competence and accept the need to be accountable through appropriate structures for achieving these standards. We share our experience and knowledge with others where it can assist them.
We believe that envisioned, equipped and impassioned local churches are best placed to lead their communities out of extreme poverty.
