Accountability: We believe that it is imperative to give a transparent account of who we are, our operational and management procedures, and to document our actions and their results.

Professionalism: To us, a professional approach is a fundamental prerequisite for effective humanitarian and development action. We pledge to invest in the training of all our staff because we see it as an ethical commitment to the government, communities and Development partners. 

Partnership: The challenges of poverty and injustice cannot be tackled alone, but only through joint efforts, which is why we are committed to creating and strengthening relationships everywhere

Ownership: Local bodies representing the community as well as institutional, associative, academic, and entrepreneurial sectors are central to the development processes of each country. All our interventions are in line with the demands and needs expressed by local bodies within their aspirations and strategies.

Innovation: To us, this is a binding choice that we make when formulating projects, analyzing existing good practices and identifying possible technical and social innovations according to their effectiveness and sustainability.

Transparency: To us, the way in which an organization works, manages financial resources and, above all, values its human resources cannot be separated from its values.
