Our core values and beliefs
We are called to serve
We draw our inspiration from Mark 10:45 which says “our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ came to the world to serve” and He instructed His disciples to serve. As an organization we believe we are called to serve the marginalized, vulnerable with humility. We at SMAid also believe that as Christians we are called to provide support to the fatherless and widows as well as the underserved in their affliction and to keep them unspotted from the world.
We believe in teamwork
At SMAid, we believe that though the body has many parts, it still forms one body. We believe that each individual’s work and efforts collectively help in achieving our results and targets. We hold each individual in high esteem as well as the communities we work in. We believe in unity in diversity.
We are stewards
We believe that as Christians, we have be given talents by God and we are to work with our talents to produce yields some ten, five, three, etc. We take good care of what God has assigned us with which includes taking good care of the land, reaching to the less privileged and marginalized. We also ensure that the resources given to us by donors, individuals and partners are used for the intended purpose to generate benefits for the communities we partner and work with.
We are accountable
We are transparent in all our dealings including financials. We at SMAid believe that whatever we do here on earth, we shall be accountable to God. We are transparent about our decisions and actions and as a result, we accomplish what we plan to do. As an organization, we are accountable for every action we take no matter the outcome. The resources given to us by donors are used for their intended tasks. We want our donors to feel comfortable giving to help the marginalized and vulnerable in our society. We give detailed accounts of the resources we receive from donors. We report annually to our stakeholders by providing details of our annual, programmatic and financial reports.
