Our Values



Making a Positive Difference:

We are focused on one thing – supporting workable, effective and long-term solutions to reduce poverty in a sustainable way in our region.


We are committed to mutual engagement and embrace the full participation and diverse perspectives of others to create stronger, more adaptable and more resilient communities and partners.


We establish clear long-term goals, regularly measure our performance, and openly report, discuss and learn from our results.


We are passionate learners, actively sharing and incorporating the knowledge we have gained, and constantly working to improve on our ability to achieve our mission.


We are steadfast stewards of the Foundation’s many assets and we demonstrate our high level of integrity in both our words and our actions, among ourselves and with others.


We honor the dignity and worth of all people, striving for humility and acting with thoughtfulness.
