The Loaves & Fishes Network affirms the following core values that undergird the work of its staff and volunteers:
- DISCIPLINE, DEDICATION AND COOPERATON
We work as a team, within our organisational guidelines, and towards our vision.
- LOYALTY, ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY
We interact closely with communities and stakeholders, and our success depends on the manner in which we work.
- COMMUNICATION AND TRANSPARENCY
We depend on the kindness of many, and so strive to keep our communities and stakeholders informed.
- PROMOTING CLEANLINESS
We must ensure that we work in, and promote in our communities, a healthy and eco-friendly environment.
We need to be creative in the way we utilise our resources, as well as, promote creativity as part of our childcare training and development.
- ENCOURAGEMENT, SERVICE AND SUPPORT
We strive towards qualified childcare trainers and caregivers, who work in quality facilities, and who work hand-in-hand with their communities to identify individual needs and implement appropriate actions.
- EMPATHY AND COMPASSION
We work with very disadvantaged communities and it is our duty to appreciate and respect their individual circumstances.
