Why we believe investing in local solutions and long-term relationships are “smart risks.”
We work towards inclusiveness and collective prosperity. We fight for the human rights of all, enhancing safety, security, and freedom for girls, women, and sexual minorities.
We support community-driven development led by local leaders who understand the local context, priorities, and realities.
Our partners work towards a high level of group cohesion, cooperation, and community interaction. SIA members provide peer-support and encouragement.
By building long-term partnerships with grant partners, and giving flexible funding, they have more time and space to address complex problems with long-lasting solutions. We support empowerment and resilience-building, rather than short-term solutions.
We look for groups that are engaging a broad base of leadership, including women and marginalized communities, in decision-making processes.
Our goal is to enhance love, harmony, and understanding at household and community level.
We celebrate the ripple effect of giving and receiving, sharing the results, and sharing the gift.
GROWTH & LEARNING
As an organization we pledge to listen to our grant partners, always be learning, practice vulnerability, and serve with humility.
