OUR CORE VALUES:
We are committed to relieve the children’s suffering and to promote the transformation of their well being. We stand in solidarity in a common search for justice. We seek to understand the situation of the kids in the poorest country in the world and work alongside the people and programs that can transform them. Our focus starts with the kids – who are the neediest of them all.
We value people and seek to establish a partnership between the kids who have been born in the poorest part of the world and the affluent that have accumulated more than the average – to open both groups to transformation. We respect the kids to be active participants, not passive recipients, in this relationship. We respect the affluent who are people from whom others may learn and receive, as well as their ability to give. The need for transformation is common to all. We act in ways that respect dignity, uniqueness, and intrinsic worth of every person — the kids, the donors, the volunteers, and the CongoVoice leadership. We celebrate the richness of diversity in human personality, culture and contribution. We practice a participative, open, enabling style in working relationships.
We are stewards of the resources at our disposal. We are committed to build and sustain a trust with our donors on behalf of the kids. We are open and factual in our dealings with donors, project communities, governments and the public at large. We demand of ourselves high standards of professional competence and financial accountability. All administrative costs are covered by a core group of CongoVoice leadership so that THE ENTIRE AMOUNT OF YOUR DONATION goes directly to the people. Therefore, allowing the opportunity to make a difference through Congo Voice immense.
We are partners with the kids and with donors in a shared vision for the Congo. We maintain a cooperative stance and a spirit of openness towards other humanitarian organizations who are working within the Congo – which includes World Vision, Hope International, Paul Carlson Partners, CEUM, and many others. We leverage the strengths of these organizations to maximize our combined effectiveness. Our partnership includes bringing Congolese leadership to America for personal / group training, to build stronger relationships, to increase awareness to current and potential partners, and to access the effectiveness of the CongoVoice efforts.
