Participation

We commit to working in genuine partnership with local communities, NGOs and other organisations which aim for sustainable development in response to local needs. We commit to the empowerment and inclusive participation of people whose lives are affected by our initiatives. This will require:
  • Policies and practices ensuring effective stakeholder involvement in the
    development, implementation and evaluation of the organisation’s programmes
    and advocacy work wherever possible;
  • A well-functioning feedback and complaints mechanism to be in place;
  • Practices to ensure that partners also meet high standards of accountability and
    that there are no links with organisations, or persons involved in illegal or
    unethical practices.
