Vision, Mission, Values
Children, women, families and communities are supported to access and create opportunities in this life.
To listen to, engage with and advocate side by side with children, women, families and communities as they define and act on their own solutions to complex social challenges.
- We Listen. This Life was born out of the act of listening, when our founder listened to the fears and hopes of people in a Cambodian community who felt that they were never normally heard, and then helped them to overcome those fears and achieve those hopes. Listening remains a foundational value, whether
listening to the people we support in communities, or to each other, or to our supporters and partners.
- We Collaborate. Everybody has their own talents and abilities, but we know that these are multiplied when we work together, understanding each other’s expertise, respecting each other’s contribution and challenging each other to achieve even more. This collaborative approach doesn’t stop at the office door, but extends into the way we work with communities and individuals,
and with our partners, donors and supporters.
- We Have Integrity. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and we are open and accountable to each other, to authorities, to donors and to beneficiaries about what, when, why and how we do things. We keep our promises.
- We Balance. For us to continue creating sustainable change, it is vital we are mindful of our personal lives and health, so we pledge to always find time to look after ourselves and look out for each other.
