Our values are at the heart of our mission to support the education of children in need around the world.
Passion for Education
Quality education from credible institutions offered in safe, nurturing environments is crucial to empowering young people, who will become tomorrow’s leaders and innovators. That’s why we provide underprivileged children, who are eager to learn, the chance for an education that will lift them up out of difficult situations, helping to instill confidence and self-esteem.
With strict monitoring guidelines in place, Yours Humanly upholds the highest levels of transparency, honesty, and openness within our organization, between our organization and valued donors, and between our organization and trusted partners. We are guided by our commitment to transparency and hold ourselves openly accountable for our work and our advocacy on behalf of children in need.
Integrity, Ethics & Stewardship
Our commitment to unimpeachable integrity, ethics, and stewardship aligns with our commitment to children. We carefully and responsibly distribute donations to maximize the positive impact we make on the children we serve, while ensuring that our management practices guarantee the long-term sustainability of our organization. With every decision and every action, we consider our mission, our donors, and the overriding needs of the communities we serve.
We passionately believe in the importance of building and nurturing an engaged and meaningful local and global community of volunteers, partners, sponsors, and leaders in education. The beloved African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child," means that a child will thrive only when surrounded by people who have a sense of community. We embrace and celebrate community and know that we cannot do the work we do on behalf of children without the creative collaboration of others who share our mission. The distinctive life experiences, skills, and perspectives of our local and global community partners ensure our continued growth and abilities to help children in need around the world.
Our commitment to the children we serve is unwavering. Every child who receives a K-12 scholarship through our Coloring Futures initiative is guaranteed educational support through twelfth grade. For additional programs we have in place through Coloring Futures and Bridging Gaps, we budget our funds accordingly for success and assign priority to students, classrooms, and schools that most need our help.
We recognize our work takes place within a diverse and multicultural world and is made stronger and more effective by embracing diverse ideas and approaches as we develop and implement our programs and services. Variety in the backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and beliefs of the people with whom we work and the people we serve is one of our greatest assets.
