We embrace prudent administration of resources entrusted to us; and champion open and transparent decision making, communication and feedback. We are accountable to each other, and take responsibility for all our actions.
We are committed to principles of trustworthiness, honesty and reliability in order to build the credibility of the Association and its members. We are guided by the EAPN governance charter (ethics).
We are committed to ensuring that all people have fair access to resources, opportunities, rights and human dignity. We respect the variety and diversity that exists in society, and promote equity and inclusion.
We are bold when faced challenges, rather than give up our goals or compromise for convenience or comfort. We go down uncharted paths, and challenge accepted norms openly with confidence.
We seek to develop working relationships with like-minded entities guided by partnership principles of mutual respect, complementarity, reciprocity, shared value and joint learning.
We are nurturing a community of philanthropy leaders who share knowledge and resources, build trusting relationships and engage in challenging conversations, so that we can enhance the impact of grant-makers across the sector and East Africa.
