Asha Trust (Sri Lanka)
Asha Trust's primary goal is to empower local people to build ladders out of poverty.
We aim to do this by
Participation/ Listening... we will listen to those we assist, recognizing that they have the right to create their own ladders out of poverty. We recognise that our role is not to 'help people' rather to help people to help themselves.
We will ensure that there are many ways for people's voices to be heard, and we will work hard to seek out the voices of those who are on the margins.
Accountable... we will be accountable to trustees and appropriate regulatory bodies, funders, and those we seek to serve.
Transparency...we will be open and honest at all times. We will share the key...
