Core Principles of HLSS

 

The internal and external publics of HLSS are governed by high moral principles, integrity, innovativeness and stringent accountability. In HLSS, Equity is valued as unconditional expression of social justice and a key to alleviating poverty and socio-economic inequalities. We are committed to the principles of universality and inclusiveness of the most vulnerable people while ensuring gender equity in the operations and outcomes of our interventions. By this, we strive to achieve long term sustainable quality service.

HLSS works to promote good stewardship, transparency, stringent accountability and efficiency by use of sound systems that guarantee financial security which is indispensable in maintaining and expanding our long-term commitment to the most vulnerable people and our partners.

 

Human Dignity

 

At HLSS, we treat dignity of the human person as sacred, inviolable and a fundamental right. We are committed to lead social actions to eradicate dehumanizing poverty, unacceptable living and working conditions and unjust socio-economic, political and cultural structures.

 

Pro-Poor Services

 

All our interventions are tailored to be more available, accessible, acceptable and affordable by poor people in remote rural communities. We recognize the inadequacy of budgets for public expenditure on basic services as a major problem which translates into increasing household financial burden and consequently perpetuating dehumanizing poverty.  We are focused on working with all stakeholders by means of collaboration, implementation, advocacy and partnership.

HLSS as a National Non- Governmental Organization (NNGO) believes in community involvement to enhance saliency of behavioural change as a way of creating a supportive environment for their participation. We seek to empower individuals, families and communities to gain knowledge and skills that will enable them to take informed decisions.
