  1. Entrepreneurial Spirit: We are here for a reason and believe in limiting bureaucracy, being incredibly responsive to our donors and clients, and giving staff the space to realize their potential.
  2. Live the Field: As a company of practitioners, we know field and local staff are the core of development programming; we take care of them above all.
  3. Teamwork not Ego: We succeed or fail as a team; it starts with building trust, treating people with respect, and holding each other accountable.
  4. Locally Inspired: We rely on our local staff and partners to design and implement impactful programs.
  5. Results Driven: We believe in evidence-based programming, learning from our successes and failures, and improving the lives of the people we work with globally.
