Our Principles

  • Partnership: Partnership is woven into the fabric of the Ansara Family Fund: partnership with local leaders and community-based organizations, with the public sector, with international NGOs, and with other funders.
  • Bottom-up change: We favor bottom-up initiatives that put the poor in charge of their own dreams and destinies, and that build the capacities of the organizations that work on their behalf.
  • Justice first: We seek to strengthen community-based programs that alleviate immediate suffering while aiming to eliminate the systemic injustices that cause suffering.
  • Long-term strategies: We support lasting solutions that can be shared and partnerships that endure. We build to last.
