We are captivated by the idea that
everyday people have the power to change the world
In everything we do
we embody these core values
We believe in removing barriers and elevating local leaders and communities. We want to empower people to lift themselves out of poverty. In other words, we believe good development is less of us and more of local leaders and communities.
How we tell the story matters. Elevating the core dignity of all people is based on a simple–yet challenging–act of empathy. It influences everything from how we select our partners, the photos we share, and how we engage social media.
We deeply care about financial transparency and impact metrics. In other words, we have nothing to hide. We also believe that development is messy and that nuance needs to be told with integrity and humility.
Whether it’s donors, partners, volunteers, or people in the communities we work in–this is OUR collective story. Elevating the relational over transactional pushes us to see that we’re part of a larger movement for justice.
