OUR VALUES

in everything we do

we embody these core values

At One Day’s Wages, our core values are guiding principles that inform our operations from our thorough grant vetting process, to how we post on social media, to how we engage with our partners on the ground. As a supporter of our grassroots movement, we believe you deserve to know what drives our work. And we invite you to consider these guiding principles in every simple act of generosity–at One Day’s Wages and beyond.

DIGNITY

How we tell the story matters. Elevating the core dignity of all people is based on a simple yet challenging act of empathy. It influences everything we do.

EMPOWERMENT

We believe in removing barriers and empowering people to alleviate poverty in their context by empowering elevating leaders on the ground. In other words, we believe good development is less of us and more of local leaders and communities.

IMPACT

We believe your resources should be invested well. While we know development can be messy, we believe in measurable and sustainable impact.

MUTUALITY

Whether it’s donors, volunteers, or partners on the ground, this is OUR collective story. We hope that partnership will not be simply transactional, but rather relational and that it continues to grow in mutuality.

TRANSPARENCY

We care deeply about financial transparency and impact metrics. In other words, we have nothing to hide. We are committed to 100% of your donation (minus processing fees) going directly to projects on the ground. We fundraise for all of our operational expenses separately.
