THE 10 ACTIONS
We let people come to us with their ideas and we operate on a 10-point agenda, which ensures needs-driven programmes and sustainable impact.
1. NEEDS-DRIVEN PROGRAM
All projects in our target countries are identified, designed and managed by our Target Partners and supported on-site by our partner organisations, because they are better equipped to identify the needs of their respective communities. Action10 provides them with tools to eventually become self-sustaining.
2. EQUAL PARTNERSHIP
Action10 believes that in order to achieve the best results, all Target and Program Partners must work in equal partnership. Responsibilities and benefits between Program Partners are equally shared.
3. EVALUATION PLANNING
Each project needs to be evaluated in real-time so that we can take advantage of the lessons learnt in order to improve the programme design. Our observations and evaluations are documented in our Program Journal, and Action10 takes responsibility for keeping the journal updated.
4. STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP
Action10 seeks to collaborate with governments, authorities, academia, the private sector, civil society organisations, aid organisations, and media to stay informed about the programmes and activities.
5. INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITY
Action10 employs uniform procedures to make sure that all aspects of the programme, including administration, policies, strategies, staff number and competencies, finances, accounting procedures, and infrastructures respect the 10 actions.
6. SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY
This action aims to make each project financially self-sustaining. Each project may initially need seed funding to kickstart but should never become dependent on external funding.
7. QUALITY VALUES
The quality values of the Action10 programmes include truth, trust, equality, and harmony. Any relationship, partnership, communication, transaction, activity, and report must fully honour the four Action10 quality values.
The capacity to stay strong, even when challenges threaten the programme is important. Weakness in an activity, or behaviour that threatens the programme, is managed by all stakeholders with patience, respect, capacity, care, and love.
9. KNOWLEDGE SHARING
Acquired knowledge shall be shared between all our partners. All means available shall be used for this purpose, including face-to-face meetings, seminars, workshops, media, social media, and scientific publications.
All means available shall be used to make Action10 visible to the public, including participation in events arranged by strategic partners, seminars, workshops, social media, media, institutional annual reports, and scientific publications.
