Working together for a world free of poverty.
These traits express the belief and define the culture of the organization. We remain guided by the timeless values and teachings provided by the revelations contained within the Qur’an and prophetic example.
Our actions in tackling poverty are marked by excellence in our operations and conduct, which are deserving of the people we serve.
In responding to poverty and suffering, our efforts are driven by sincerity to God and the need to fulfill our obligations to humanity.
Our work is founded on enabling people and institutions to fulfill the rights of the poor and vulnerable. We work to empower the dispossessed toward realizing their God-given human potential and developing their capabilities and resources.
We believe the protection and well-being of every life is of paramount importance and we shall join with other humanitarians to act as one in responding to suffering brought on by disasters, poverty and injustice.
We uphold our duty of custodianship over the Earth, its resources and the trust people place in us as humanitarian and development practitioners. We are transparent and accountable.
