> Solidarity is the driving force behind our approach, guiding all our actions. We are convinced that now more than ever it has an essential role to play in meeting the challenges we face in this pivotal century. Along with altruism, social justice, and mutual aid, solidarity is a formidable lever for achieving great things.
> Any commitment to a cause must be accompanied by a profound belief in its success because the road is long and complicated. But we are determined to conduct and support the actions we believe in, and we are more determined than ever to act.
> Both an energy and a state of mind, our belief in the future and our commitment is carried by hope. By thinking of tomorrow ─ as is inherent in hope ─ we can overcome the difficulties of today. As a unifying force, it enshrines individual commitment in a collective purpose.
> Supporting local Congolese associations and NGOs is a commitment on two levels: one, to the local population for whom we create hope, and second, to our donors who put their trust in us and give us the means to act. Transparency, autonomy, and leading by example are the key words in the management of our association.
