  • Our values and principles
  • The three values that underpin all of our work are love, dignity and justice.

    Side by Side is global, faith-based and enthusiastic about justice.

    We share the vision of a world in which women, men and children can enjoy equitable, healthy and fulfilled relationships that promote gender equality, prevent domestic and sexual violence, support equal opportunities and offers respect to all people.

     

    Love

    • We are motivated by a conviction of the profound and equal value and significance of each human being.
    • We share a vision of transformation empowered by costly love, which includes a commitment to mutuality, reciprocity and accountability.

     

    Dignity

    • We believe that every person has the right to freedom from violence and fear.
    • We believe that women and men must work together to transform relationships so that no harm is tolerated.
    • We believe that every human being has innate dignity because we are each made in the image of God.
    • We believe that religious or traditional practices can never justify the violation of human rights.

     

    Justice

    • We believe that justice is indivisible and that gender-based inequality and violence is unacceptable, inexcusable and intolerable.
    • We share a commitment to empower women and girls to live within all societies without the barriers of prejudice or discrimination.
