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.
