ViFoH Core Values:
Humility: – “True humility is not thinking less of yourself. It is thinking of yourself less” This is an organizational virtue that enables us to see the world as it is with all the challenges hurting it.
Audacity: – “We have a dream, we have a vision, we have a mission, we have to do something, we will do it at this time”. This organizational virtue enables us to imagine how the ideal world should be.
Courage: – “Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid, it means you don’t let fear stop you” This organizational virtue makes us boldly create the change we envision.
Our values are translated into 3 core characteristics, symbolically represented by the half globe (to symbolise our commitment to the service of humanity globally while appreciating that we are globally interconnected and interdependent), persons ( with full human capacity who are socially and economically empowered) , different colours ( representing diversity, people centeredness & inclusion. We value diversity reflected in its multi-cultural character as an explicit strength of the organization).
