About us

Mission and values

“Our mission is to co-create sustainable and balanced world of responsible individuals, businesses and organizations.”


VALUES that guide our activities:

We do what we say. We say what we think.

We talk to each other even when it is tough.

Together we can do more than individually.

We are curious, inquisitive and creative.

We recognize that our actions have an impact on us and others and we accept responsibility for our decisions.

We celebrate our own achievements and success of others.

In our work we focus on the importance of human rights for the improvement of development cooperation effectiveness, on increasing the level of social responsibility of all actors of the society and we explore changes that these rights make in the lives of excluded individuals.
