Code Belief :

1. Amplifying Community Voices: Community members have the best knowledge of what their community needs. It is critical to give them platforms to come together to discuss their priorities, and how they are being served by government.

2. Partnership and Collaboration: Through networking and collaborating with NGOs, civil society organizations, government entities, and community groups in Liberia, as well as Liberian diaspora groups and international supporters, developing long-term and collaborative relationships.

3. Maintaining the Highest Standards of Institutional Performance : committed to sound financial management, accountable and transparent governance and effective communication

Our strategy is based on community empowerment and helping people discover their human talents and potentials, identify natural resources and fully participate in making decisions and taking positive actions that will transform their lives, their communities and the country. Our organizational approach has two components, community advocacy, and community organizing.
