ELOI Ministries Vision “Hope for an African Child, the ability to restore the rights and position of an African Child” ELOIM Mission “To bring dignity and hope to men, women and children in African communities through health care, education, access to justice and community re-integration” ELOI Ministries Faith statement “We are a Christian based international organization, following and celebrating our Lord Jesus Christ, working with the poor, orphaned and oppressed to promote human transformation, justice and witness the good news of the kingdom of God” ELOIM Values: The organization core values are embedded in fivefold;
• Christian based organization
• Bringing hope to the helpless
• Value for life and transformation for the better
• We are approachable and responsive.
• We believe in team work
In order to achieve our objectives, ELOI Ministries has established a Fivefold core values above which are enlightened into nine core organizational values. For consistency, these are set out below:
1. Integrity, transparency and accountability underpin the approach of all Organization Departments, management and support staff to their duties and responsibilities. All Organization personnel are expected to be truthful, reliable, and accountable for their actions.
2. Equity and fairness are important principles that underlie ELOI Ministries’ human resource management and development objectives, policies and programmes. ELOI Ministries is an equal opportunity employer that believes in implementing a responsive performance-based reward system to attract and retain highly competent and motivated personnel.
3. Empathy entails getting concerned with and contributing to the resolution of problems of individual internal and external customers that may have either a direct or an indirect bearing on the smooth operation of the Organization.
4. Community focus refers to ELOI Ministries’ conviction that the community/client constitutes the primary reason for the organization’s existence. ELOI Ministries’ approach to programme design and delivery, therefore, seeks first to respond to and satisfy identified needs of the different community segments that are served by the Organization. ELOI Ministries will be guided by the principle of providing value-for-money to all its clients.
5. Teamwork is key to the successful achievement of ELOI Ministries’ endeavors, right from the sharing of a common vision, mission and objectives, to the mutual support that individuals are expected to extend to one another to ensure cost effective implementation of planned activities.
6. Professionalism demands, inter alia, a thorough knowledge of one’s field of endeavor as well as demonstration of skill, high ethical standards, and respect for ELOI Ministries’ clients and other stakeholders.
7. Flexibility requires the Organization to design programmes that meet the expectations of the community by taking into account constraints such as professional commitments, family commitments and distance.
8. Innovativeness is the key to continuous improvement. The Organization shall encourage staff to come up with new ideas as long as they help to fulfill the Organization’s mandate. The existing decentralized framework and the planning system, which is cascaded from the strategic level through the tactical level to the operational level, provides the necessary incentives for innovation.
9. Sustainability calls for ensuring that ELOI Ministries attains sufficiently high levels of surplus ability to meet the operational and development needs of the Organization over the years. Surplus ability will, however, be pursued while having regard to the Organization’s social responsibilities, as a responsible corporate citizen.
The sustainability of this Organization is guaranteed on grounds that “knowledge is power” and that this knowledge can be transmitted from one person to another. Equipping the people with knowledge will reduce on ignorance first, and guarantee them with long life for sustainable development.
