Every human being is a ‘living image of God the Father’, with ‘inherent value and dignity’, each ‘with his or her own rights and a fundamental equality with everyone else’.
We believe that every human being is gifted in some way to contribute to the overall good of society. We thus feel duty-bound to use all our abilities in service of people in need.
Our approach is one of solidarity, which reflects this unique value of human beings. Solidarity is more than a ‘vague compassion or shallow distress at the misfortunes of others’, but a serious commitment to ‘the common good, to the good of each and every individual’.
While solidarity calls for improvement of living conditions, it also means a ‘concern for spiritual and moral values’ thus ensuring both, ‘economic growth’ and ‘human betterment’.
Our work is inspired by this understanding of solidarity, and our programs are designed to directly assist people affected by poverty, economic, educational and other disadvantages.
We hope that through our activities we have added to the efforts of creating a more just world, and we intend to continue with our work deep into the future.
