Our core values
Our strategic plan reflects our commitment to moving from charity towards actualizing justice and equity in development.
Our work is anchored by five core values:
Safety: We prioritize the physical and psychological safety of everyone involved in our work, from our team to our partners and the end-users we serve. Safety is essential for building bridges and maximizing our impact.
Bold thinking: We think creatively to make informed decisions that lead to big, bold, and innovative solutions that are anchored in local community needs while always keeping the big picture of solving a global problem in mind.
Human-centric: We prioritize people over processes, putting the health and well-being of our team, partners, and end-users above all else.
Data-driven: We believe in being transparent about our successes and failures, using data to drive decision-making and continuously improve our approach. We recognize that learning from our past experiences is essential to creating lasting change.
Community first: When in doubt, we ask rural residents; what is best for them and rural communities across the globe.
Our workplace is a positive and energizing environment that fosters curiosity, empathy, candor, and support for individual differences. We maintain an egalitarian culture that enables open communication, collaboration and innovation at all levels. We consistently work towards an inclusive and equitable workplace, where diversity and tolerance are valued and celebrated.
We're on a mission to build bridges to better lives in rural communities through access to opportunity. We've worked with countless communities all around the world to bring safe access to over one million people, and we're just starting to scratch the surface.
