Our Core Value


  • Mutual respect: requiring us to recognize the innate worth of all people and the value of diversity, sexual orientation and gender identity, race, ethnicity, class, age, communicable disease status, disability, location and religion 
  • Equity and justice: requiring us to ensure transparency and accountability at all levels for the effectiveness of our actions and our use of resources in a fair and just way. 
  • Integrity: requiring us to be open and honest in our judgments and communications with others. 
  • Solidarity with people living in poverty and exclusion in the fight for justice and gender equality. 
  • Courage of conviction: requiring us to be creative and radical, bold and innovative –without fear of failure – in pursuit of making the greatest possible impact on the causes of poverty, injustice, and gender inequality. 
  • Independence: from any religious or party-political affiliation. 
  • Humility: recognizing that we are part of a wider alliance against poverty and injustice.
