AFIEGO’s core values guide the organisation’s behavior, inform its decision making processes and operational activities, and shape the strategies that it pursues in the face of challenges and opportunities. AFIEGO’s core values are:
At all times, AFIEGO seeks to involve local communities, policy makers and stakeholders in its activities. This is done through engagement of participatory approaches to decision making and action-taking at all levels in the organisation and within our networks and partnerships. AFIEGO’s promotion of participation is designed to minimise the power inequalities in human relations that create and sustain poverty and injustices through suppression of alternative voices.
AFIEGO ensures that it undertakes all its work with utmost openness and that the public knows how and why they carry out their activities in a particular manner. The organisation ensures information sharing with stakeholders, government and key players in the energy sector.
AFIEGO and all persons acting in its name and on the organisation’s behalf act in an open and responsible manner. The organisation is desirous of manifesting institutionalised accountable behaviour, contributing to the setting of best standards in corporate responsibility in the non-profit sector. It opens itself up to public scrutiny and takes responsibility for acts of omission and commission. AFIEGO is accountable for funds and resources in its possession to stakeholders and endeavours to uphold both general and vertical accountability
In recognition of the centrality of politics to the development process, AFIEGO’s research and advocacy agenda addresses central political issues of governance, accountable leadership, political transparency and fighting corruption in a non-partisan manner. This is done in such a way that AFIEGO does not align itself to any political party or ideals.
