The LWF is committed to embodying and achieving our values as we work with and through communities and like-minded partners.
Dignity and justice
We respect the dignity of every person and empower vulnerable communities in their effort to achieve justice, human rights and a sustainable future. We address the underlying causes of poverty and exclusion, and work for a more equitable distribution of power, resources, and opportunities.
Compassion and commitment
We care and show compassion for those who are in need. At the same time, we are committed to professional humanitarian standards and accountability frameworks in our program management and implementation.
Respect for diversity
We see differences among us as the expression of the richness of God’s creation, and thus respect diversity within the communities we work in and in our workforce.
Inclusion and participation
We are committed to being inclusive and enabling the full participation of women and men, people of all ages, and people with disabilities in all our programs and decision-making processes, as well as in the larger society.
Transparency and accountability
We are strongly committed to transparency in all our activities, motives, aims, program, financial decisions, and results. We aim to ensure accountability toward affected populations and accountability to partners and donors.
