Our Beliefs & Values

We Believe in social integrity giving the community what they need and what they deserve. The foundation has transparency to the people and the donors and sponsors so they will be able to see where the donation goes and who will receive it.


In Order to have a positive outcome on our projects, Unity is very important. All the goals and missions are only possible to achieve once unity is present in our foundation.


People that need help also need to feel loved. To have a positive outlook from people we should love what we do. To gain the trust of the community and to fulfill the missions that we set to do we need love. Love for our work, love to the people, and love for ourselves.


Respect is one of the key values people from the foundation must-have. From volunteering work and different disaster response programs, the foundation people will be able to meet different kinds of people from different walks of life so treating others with respect should always be done.
