Therefore, we are committed to providing information and resources which will enable people to make informed decisions. We are dedicated to creating an environment where people participate in activities that promote social change.
We believe that dignity, respect and justice are rights of all people regardless of age, language, ethnicity, culture, religion, ability, gender, income, geographical location or sexual orientation.

Therefore, we are committed to recognizing and addressing barriers such as violence, poverty, isolation, exclusion, oppression and discrimination, so as to enable people to reach their full potential.
We believe that by working together we can achieve more than we can on our own.
Therefore, we are committed to creating partnerships with individuals and groups that build on equality, respect, integrity, accountability and responsibility.
