What we do
What we want to achieve
As an International Social Purpose Organisation, we address social issues and always prioritise the interests of the communities we serve.
Friendship is people helping people.
We make four strong commitments to the unaddressed communities we serve.
To reach our vision and fulfil our mission, we apply our five core values in all our actions. Since 2002, we deliver needs-based services to the communities with a participative and inclusive approach. Through an innovative, integrated development model and an entrepreneurial mindset, we achieve sustainable outcomes, trying to ensure no one is left behind.
The Friendship Way
Friendship is a needs-based and values-driven organisation, deeply embedded in the communities where it works. We focus on understanding local situations and identifying gaps that we can fill, and we always do so in consultation and inclusion with the communities.
Because all problems are intertwined, we have developed an integrated development model where all organisational sectors work in close interaction. Our programs span across our floating hospitals and access to healthcare for all, disaster relief, capacity building and economic development, climate resilience, education, inclusion and access to rights and and cultural preservation.
This pragmatic, holistic and participative approach in implementing solutions has proved to work. It gives high social return for communities and donors.
