What does comprehensive support look like at the Salvation Army?

Our guiding principles and convictions

Carrying out development work is a major challenge: the aid provided should have an impact and reach its intended destination. And of course, our support must be accepted by the local population. It should also be viable in the long term. We are convinced that a project is only successful when it has met these conditions.

At the Salvation Army, we ask ourselves: what does comprehensive support in development cooperation look like? What conditions must we meet for a project to be successful? What does a project require to be effective in the long term? You’ll find our answers to these and other important questions in the principles and convictions of our work.

You can also read about how we stand up for accountability and transparency and why good networks are important to our work.
