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’

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.
