* inspire confidence
* unite communities
* enhance equal opportunities
* establish justice
* embrace cultural diversity
* create sustainable impact

Guided by our core philosophy, we are responsible for creating sustainable impact, which ensures human security.

We believe . . .

– That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
– That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
– That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
– That government should be of laws rather than of men;
– That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;
– And that service to humanity is the best work of life.”
