Vision, Mission & Values

Our Vision

A world in which all people are able to seek and secure justice and sustainability in the management of natural resources.

Our Mission

We support the development of civil society organisations in Africa to reach their full potencial and achieve real, positive change for environmental and social justice.

Our Values


We believe that each organisation is unique and requires a unique response in how we work with it.


We believe that each organisation should take charge of its own development process.


We believe that those affected by a decision have a right to have a say in it.


We believe that collective action is necessary for change.


We believe in collaboration and complementarity, rather than competition.


We believe that sustainable change comes through being honest about challenges and flexible in exploring solutions.


We believe that making and acknowledging mistakes, as well as celebrating successes, is key to learning and long-term organisational change.


We believe relationships must be based on mutual transparency and accountability.


We believe that commitment and passion are important in the work we do.


We believe that organisations are human, organic and complex, and not mechanical systems.

Therefore, we put relationships at the heart of our collaboration, and each person in an organisation counts.
