Vision / Mission / Guiding Principles

Kindness starts with me …

When we started out, we needed common ground, a goal, a place on the horizon that would spur us on to work that much harder.

We thought it would take us ages to arrive at a vision, mission, value statement.

In fact, it took us half an hour, everyone on the same page from the get go!

Our vision:

To provide aid and assistance to communities who need it most

Simple, uncomplicated and makes our work effective and sustainable

Supported by our mission:

Projects are evaluated against our experience and that of our committed team of volunteers.

From this step we can offer aid and assistance in a meaningful way and also opening avenues for expression to our volunteers.

Win win.

And our guiding principles are:

Fairness – in that we are not biased in selecting communities we serve.

Sincerity – in that we believe we are privileged to be able to assist these communities.

Transparency – in that we spend donor money as it was intended and keep our books in order to comply with good governance standards.

Kindness is all that we do
