Core Values

The purpose and vision above are underpinned by the following core values:

  • The essential equality and dignity of all human beings. We believe that the response to poverty is just as much an issue of justice as of charity.
  • Commitment to the whole person. Care will be provided for abused, oppressed and impoverished people in the context of their family, community and environment, with a concern for their spiritual, physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
  • Empowering people. We encourage others to make a meaningful response to the injustice of poverty.
  • Developing meaningful relationships. Our relationships with individuals, organisations and communities are focused on empowering the poor and caring for the environment.
  • Presenting a positive image of those we serve. We never emotionally manipulate or blackmail the public into giving money through presenting negative images of the global poor or those suffering under oppression.
  • Commitment to excellence. We strive to provide our partners, supporters and colleagues with an excellent quality of service, in a professional manner. We will pursue improvement in all that we do by encouraging creativity and innovation.
  • Honesty, trustworthiness and transparency. These three qualities are vital in all that we do. We are dedicated to making what we do consistent with what we say.
