Pueblo a Pueblo's values
Pueblo a Pueblo was founded on the belief that meaningful and sustainable change requires the commitment and active involvement of the individual, community, or organization that will benefit from that change. In this approach, the beneficiaries help determine their needs and potential solutions, resulting in more culturally appropriate, effective, and sustainable interventions.
Pueblo a Pueblo strives to deepen values such as personal responsibility, self-respect, careful stewardship of resources, mutual collaboration, and creative problem-solving. Pueblo a Pueblo also seeks to support the cross-cultural values of compassion, respect for others, and service qualities that must be cultivated if we are to create a world of greater equity.
