We believe that people, even in dire conditions have the ability and will to act and liberate themselves from the shackles of poverty. However, this is only possible in an enabling environment and level playing field.
We make an effective contribution to improve the framework conditions for sustainable development through the facilitation of access to skills, knowledge, markets, technologies and financial services.
We believe that balanced private sector and market-driven approaches in the context of an environmentally and socially sustainable market economy offer the best conditions for people to fulfill their potential and make sustainable development possible.
We act responsibly and respect people in their own contexts, societies and cultures.
We stand for professional quality and high ethical standards in our activities.
