Our Values

Human Dignity

Human dignity is the basic principle of humanitarian work. All humans deserve to live with a minimum standard of dignity and respect regardless of any circumstances. This includes a dignified quality of life. Basic human rights are fundamental to a dignified quality of life for all people.

Self Reliance & Determination

Building up communities and empowering them to become self reliant and self sufficient is the most powerful way to build a future of hope for generations to come. This is the ultimate goal of sustainable development and can best be achieved with the input and participation of the affected communities.

Social Justice

Social injustices are one of the root causes for many systemic issues around the world, including in our own societies here in the West. Social injustice perpetuates cycles of suffering, poverty and great disadvantages. And thus any long term solutions must strive towards social justice and equality for all.

Sustainability

Relief work and sustainable development need to go hand in hand to break the cycle of poverty and to empower disadvantaged people around the world. Sustainable development forwards the ultimate goal which is enhanced quality of life. All of our programs are designed with sustainability in mind. Sustainable development increases quality of life, and that is the goal.
