Core Values

Pro-link bases the work it does on a foundation of values and believes. These form our commitment to our target population. We believe in:

  • Competence: that our staff and volunteers are our greatest resource and merit investment in capacity building and support.
  • Diversity and inclusion: in respecting the rich variety of cultures, traditions, religions, languages, identities, interests, views, abilities and communities in Ghana and welcoming the expression and representation of diversity and upholding the right of each to speak and be heard.
  • Local Ownership:  Our projects are based on the principle that communities have local control in health promotion and poverty reduction. Pro-link creates community ownership of projects to ensure sustainability of our interventions.
  • Confidentiality: individuals’ health status is to be respected and treated confidentially.
  • Partnership: We foster long-term partnerships with organizations – donors, Health Institutions, other NGOs, coalitions, governments Institutions – that are working for  positive, sustainable social and economic change.
  • Accountability / Integrity: We uphold very strong values of accountability in handling all project funds while ensuring that we employ individuals of high integrity.
