We believe in the inherent right for every person to own self-respect and to know self-worth.
We believe that dignity is achieved through a cultivated ability to provide for ourselves, our family, and our fellow people.
We endeavour to encourage self-sufficiency in Haiti; to work at the grassroots level to introduce appropriate technology and training; to bring hope, encouragement and resources to help communities work out solutions to their adversities.
