VALUES

SERVICE TO OTHERS

The Christian faith, which underpins the values of Windle International calls us to love and care for one another in compassion and humility.  Windle values a commitment to serve one another and support those who have been affected by conflict through the provision of educational opportunities and training.

 

COOPERATION AND PARTNERSHIP

Windle believes in listening to and working with those who have been affected by conflict.  The work should be rooted in a spirit of cooperation, engaging with stakeholders and other key representatives within the cultural environment.

 

LONGTERM INVESTMENT

Windle values investment in people, supporting individuals to become the architects of their own future through access to training and education.  Windle primarily focuses on and advocates for investment in the long term goals of peaceful development – thereby transforming the lives of individuals and their surrounding community, region and continent.

 

LEADERSHIP AND EQUALITY

Windle seeks to inspire service and leadership values of wisdom, courage, respect and determination to improve the situation for ones fellow man, to challenge structures and systems which promote injustice and those which disrespect the innate dignity of the individual and to work toward the common good.  

 

PEACE

Windle seeks to promote peace through education.  By investing in the education of refugees and others affected by conflict in Africa, Windle hopes to give encouragement to individuals and to facilitate a situation of future positive redevelopment when peace is declared and thereby minimise the potential to fall back into a cycle of conflict.   

 

INCLUSIVENESS

Windle supports those affected by conflict in Africa without discrimination on grounds of religion, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability, age or political affiliation.  We seek to address existing inequalities by a policy of positive discrimination for marginalised groups and individuals.

 

STEWARDSHIP AND ACCOUNTABILITY

Windle values good stewardship and recognises that it is accountable for the resources entrusted to it and commits to using these in a responsible, efficient, transparent and honest manner.

 

INTEGRITY

Windle International strives to achieve the highest standards in all that we do whilst upholding and expressing the values written here.
