Aguayuda’s core values are represented by the word “RESPECT” because it is crucial that we respect the communities and environment where we work, as well as the investment from our generous donors. Listening, understanding and working together as a team are important components of any project, which can only be successful if there is mutual understanding and respect.
We share a commitment with each community to plan, implement, operate and maintain the project based on mutual trust and accountability.
We teach essential health and income generating workshops to empower the people with the knowledge to save lives and to reduce poverty.
We design appropriate water, sanitation and education solutions that maximize local resources and that can be maintained by the community.
We provide opportunities for the community to develop the skills needed to enhance their physical, mental and economic well-being.
We achieve high quality results by balancing efficiency, simplicity and practicality as we address the unique needs of each community.
We follow up with each community on a regular basis to evaluate the status of each project and to make adjustments where necessary. We also assure investments from our supporters have been and continue to be used effectively and responsibly.
We use, teach and share technical solutions, including wells, windmills, filtration systems, rain harvesting systems and sanitation facilities.
