Our Three Core Principles:
1. PACT believes in starting with listening to individuals and communities. We want to sit down with beneficiaries and stakeholders to learn. We always want to invest the time necessary to build a foundation of trusting relationship in order to deliver the outcomes you need.
2. PACT believes in designing programs and projects collaboratively alongside of beneficiaries and stakeholders. We attempt to move forward and discover solutions to barriers through conversation in such a way that stakeholders and beneficiaries feel ownership. Beneficiaries will own what they create themselves.
3. PACT believes in building on what is strong in individuals and communities. We want to start with what is strong in individuals and communities not with what is wrong. We want to build with the skills and passions of beneficiaries and the power of their networks.
