Apart from being innovators, we choose to break accepted norms that we think are past their
relevance and have been supporting the unjust status quo.
We introduce countercultures that we feel and think will level the playing field for the poor.
In this way, we revolutionize how we feel, look, and act on things
6. We have the Heart of Volunteers
We consider ourselves volunteers not just because we are working in non-profit, non-government organizations.

We believe that the spirit of volunteerism drives us to be more efficient, effective, and productive
in all of the challenges that we have to face.
We believe that providing our communities with quality services is far more important than any monetary gain.
7. We are Spiritual
We believe that having the heart and culture of volunteerism makes us spiritually grounded in our
daily encounters with challenges and difficulties.
