SSD-KMD upholds her Christian virtues and dignity through observance of the following core values:-

  1. Belief in Jesus Christ
  2. We believe in Jesus Christ and the Catholic Social Teaching guides all our development interventions

  3. Christian Love
  4. God is not unfair. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other Christians, as you still do. Hebrews 6:10 Christian love demands kindness, understanding, meekness, fairness and consistency in performing your duties. We shall therefore endeavor to witness and serve our target communities and engage with all the stakeholders in the spirit of love, compassion, charity and selflessness.

  5. Social Justice
  6. Justice entails treating all people equally and fairly in all the spheres of life. It entails advocating for people who are not able to speak for themselves. We shall therefore go all out to pursue programmes that promote dignity and rights of all people, irrespective of race, colour, tribe, ethnicity, religion, political affiliation and language living in KMD on the basis of fairness and equality. We strongly believe that all humanity is created in the image of God and deserves our love.

  7. Truthfulness
  8. The truth is a powerful, liberating weapon. Truthfulness builds confidence and trust. The truth sets free all those who are crucified on the basis of falsehood. We shall therefore make every effort to vigorously promote and foster the principles of transparency, accountability and integrity in the conduct of our work.

  9. Lasting Positive Change
  10. We work not to enrich ourselves but to create lasting positive changes to our target communities. We facilitate and empower communities to make impactful changes at all levels.
