Our Values and Beliefs

Commitment to Children and Their Mothers

Every child has the right to a healthy, productive life. We are driven to make a difference in the lives of children so they can reach their full potential.

The health of mothers and children are inextricably intertwined. Therefore, we strengthen and improve systems of healthcare for vulnerable and marginalized children and mothers.


Partnerships

We work with in-country partners, especially Congregations of Catholic Women Religious, to leverage their strengths, catalyze change, and make a difference for children at the local level.

We pursue and emphasize partnerships with Congregations of Catholic Women Religious because they are champions for maternal and child health and dynamic forces for improvement of services.


Integrity

We always operate with respect and transparency in all relationships.


Long-Term Effectiveness

The best way to sustainable and lasting impact is through the development and utilization of evidence-based maternal and child health initiatives designed and implemented in partnership with local health providers and community representatives. We believe that long-term collaborative relationships result in positive transformation within communities.


Empowerment

We focus on building the capabilities, skills and knowledge of in-country partners to develop stronger and more effective, sustainable systems of maternal and child health.
