Values

Accountability: We take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable results, and being accountable to supporters, partners, and most of all, children.

Transparency: We ensure that our directors, officers, and staff are equally accountable to each other. Our non-hierarchal, peer-based accountability system ensures that each person in the organization receives constructive feedback on performance and has the opportunity to “self-assess” before the work community. Our “round table” approach to accountability ensures organizational transparency in ways that escape traditional accountability systems.

Excellence: We demand the best of ourselves. We are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and excellence in all of our work. We set high goals and firmly commit to improving the quality of everything we do for children.

Collaboration: We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity and work with each other to leverage our global strength in making a difference for children. We believe that the strongest movements are created when people and organizations partner to combine their strengths, ideas, and experiences.

Creativity: We are open to new ideas, embrace change, and take discipline risks to develop sustainable solutions for and with children.

Integrity: We aspire to live to the highest standards of personal honesty and behavior. We never compromise our reputation and always act in the best interest of children.
