AFEDJ Staff Core Values

We encourage and foster 5 core values that align with our every day work ethic and team engagement.


The way we communicate with each other shows thoughtfulness, encouragement, consideration, humility and candor. We treat everyone with dignity and respect and champion the rights and contributions of all to achieve a fairer world.


We work with others to maximize our impact, respecting diversity and difference in the pursuit of common goals.


We are entrusted with this critical work - we strive to do our best work. Consistency combined with efficiency and effectiveness helps us deliver for our partners across all our areas of our work.


We act with honesty and conviction and our actions are consistent with openness, equality and human rights.


Accountability and transparency are a prerequisite to helping people in need and it is how we show up for all of our partners. We are accountable to those whose lives we hope to see transformed, to those we work with and to those who support us.
