Every action, every Welthungerhilfe project is guided by the common belief in the equality of all people, the inviolability of their rights and the right of each individual to self-determination. In the spirit of solidarity and humanity, the goal of the organisation is to improve the lives of people in the countries where they can work.
The pillars of Welthungerhilfe's work are quality control, transparency and the obligation to account.
To the extent that Welthungerhilfe expects transparency and accountability from other state and international actors (such as institutional donors, national governments, etc.), Welthungerhilfe as an organisation must be made transparent and accountable in all its actions.
Upon entering the organisation, all employees sign the Welthungerhilfe Code of Conduct. Every single person commits to observing the rules of conduct. All partners as well as other involved groups with which Welthungerhilfe works have to be committed to it.
The primary goal of Welthungerhilfe is to be able to guarantee adherence to the rules of conduct at all times and at every level of work. Infringements or indications are received and immediately investigated via an easily accessible, anonymised feedback mechanism.
