CORE VALUES

Inclusiveness: SOVA believes in inclusive growth. Each human born has a right to grow with abilities to fulfill his/her ambitions; benefit from all developmental initiatives and make better provisions for the future generations. No one should be excluded for unreasonable reasons.

Respect for community: There is a great amount of knowledge, skills and resources untapped at the community level which must be respected and mobilized for their well being and improvement. The involvement of community members at all levels of a project implementation shall bear better results.

Accountability: Its not only responsibility but also accountability which marks involvement of SOVA in community development. Accountability gives SOVA to improve its strategies and overcome follies with greater responsiveness.

Ensuring equity: Equity, not similar with equality, but ensuring that what someone gets is fair and just.
