Our work is guided by three fundamental values:
Support safe volunteering and, through our programme activities, support the development of safe healthcare practice.
Make effective use of the money contributed by our donors and the time and expertise given by our volunteers, to enable change in people, practices and institutions, building capacity and achieving sustainable impact.
Listen to our partners, volunteers and stakeholders and plan, implement and learn together, ensuring that our activities are ethical, consistent with our partners’ local and national plans, and complement activities of other development partners.
We have helped individuals and teams to deliver the very highest standards of safe, effective and ethical volunteering and share their expertise around the world, bringing back new ideas that enrich and enhance our own practice.
