OUR CORE VALUES: THE ABC’S

1

ACCOUNTABILITY

We believe in transparent communication, and take full responsibility for our actions and decisions. We always initiate our projects with measurable indicators and report on them with integrity.

2

BENEVOLENCE

We believe that “paying it forward” creates a culture of generosity that improves the quality of life in the communities in which we work – at home and abroad.

3

COLLABORATION

We believe that a collaborative approach that unites us with our community partners, donors, and students can make a meaningful impact on the future of Liberia.

4

SERVICE

We believe that engaging and encouraging youth at home and abroad in service-based education will create a better future for everyone.

With their combined years of incredible experiences and passion for service, our advisory board helps us lift the heavy stones we cannot lift by ourselves by opening windows of support. We are thankful to God for their services.
