Since EFD is not about making money, but about creating value for others in the form of improved quality of life, it is important to put into writing what drives us, why we get up every morning and do what we do. A sense of purpose is central to any engagement.
Core values brand promises
There are some values that are particularly important for us to live up to in order to take EFD in the desired direction. These are:
To us, nothing is a given, we think unconditionally.
We challenge the way ”things always have been done” in aid projects and organizations.
We are actively seeking new paths to solutions.
We dare to be unconventional, to make it work is critical.
We take the ensuing steps after survival, there is more to do (just as important).
“Good enough” is not enough for us, it should always be measurably better.
We are results-oriented and work with practical solutions that are feasible.
We solve concrete problems.
We also set the framework, the bar or the level of ambition, if you like, by subjecting us to some promises in our business.
We use business practices that streamline implementation.
We take responsibility for the feasibility of the solution.
Long term view:
Our efforts should have a bearing in the long term.
Better conditions for improved quality of life for the individual is the goal.
