Our capabilities within Good Governance and Civic Engagement:
Our values define, guide and govern our behavior within CENPRODEG, our grant partners and the project beneficiaries. These values help us attain our mission:
We will act with honesty and integrity without compromising the truth. We will be open, transparent and honest in all our dealings and maintaining the highest integrity. At all times, we will ensure that the highest ethical and professional standards are maintained in our interactions. For us, integrity is about building authentic relationships with each other, our grant partners, clients and all others based on mutual respect and a sense of equality. We will openly and frankly discuss all our concerns and challenges and constructively seek solutions for them. We are accountable and answerable for our conduct (acts and omissions) to each and all others.
We are committed to the work that we do and we seek to positively impact lives both within and outside the Organization. We put our heart and mind in the work to get the very best. Our passion drives our commitment and devotion to our work. We are committed to produce innovative, high quality work with intellectual rigor. Our passion gives us our positive energy, dynamism, commitment, diligence, and tenacity to work in challenging and even hostile circumstances. Our passion gives us the courage to stand strong, and to withstand possible risk, intimidation, and uncertainty. It ensures that we are efficient and effective, reliable and dependent, that time deadlines are always met and that the needs of the Organization are always paramount. We don’t take shortcuts on quality. We are responsive and proactive in all we do. We seek the best talent and promote its development.
We are a team that works collaboratively and collegially. We stand by our clients (project beneficiaries) and colleagues within CENPRODEG. Our interactions are courteous and constructive. Our empathy, responsiveness and teamwork produce the synergy necessary to do our work. We treat one another with respect and communicate openly. We foster collaboration while maintaining individual accountability. We encourage the best ideas to surface from anywhere within the Organization. We listen to and respect each other whilst working together to achieve mutually beneficial results. When we are unsure we check with others. We provide support to one another, work co-operatively and respect one another’s views. We appreciate that everyone has strengths which we value and will use whenever possible. We help others to achieve their deadlines without having to be asked. We work with one another with enthusiasm and appreciation. We value succeeding as a team while excelling as individuals. We work with one another without manipulation. We do not upset one another intentionally and always endeavor to present negative feedback constructively. We resolve to bring conflict out into the open and to deal with it constructively until all parties are satisfied with the result. We celebrate success and see disappointments as opportunities for growth.
We live in pluralistic societies made up of people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and lifestyles. Accordingly, we support efforts that celebrate and embrace the strength of diversity and promote tolerance of difference. We appreciate the value of multiple perspectives and diverse expertise. “We” are because “they” are and “they” are because “we” are: All who embrace and seek to fulfill our collective values are one with us. Giving due respect to self and others and maintain the environment of team work and growth.
