Poor: Our priority is the extreme poor who are most cut off from information and training.
Orality: We target oral culture peoples who either can’t, don’t or won’t read.
Holistic: We are committed to the whole person: physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being.
Experiential: We rely on experiential and participatory learning to facilitate lasting change.
Relationships: We use only relational training methods since learning occurs best in community.
Grassroots: Our bias is for customized grassroots solutions rather than one solution for all.
Empowerment: We prefer to work invisibly, in the background, in order to empower locals to lead and affect change.
Only a tool: Technology is a tool, not a solution – when used well, it can expedite transformation.
