The guiding principles underpin our code of conduct and helps strengthen the desired ‘Corporate Culture’ we aspire to delivery. These principles will guide the implementation of our plans, policies and strategies for the advancement and consistent performance of the Department in service delivery. 

Integrated Community Development

The Department is built on the notion of integrated human development that encompasses all aspects of life — physical, spiritual, economic and social, cultural, mental and emotional. It looks at individuals in the context of families, communities and the nation as a whole.

Unity and Integration

A diversity of contributions from the diverse groups and regions towards the common vision must be seen as a major strength.

Morality and Ethics

High moral and ethical standards should start within the extended family group in order to have a wider impact at the community level. Cultural practices of communities that serve the common goal must be taken into consideration and utilized effectively with moral and ethical norms.

Dialogue and Partnership

Organizations and groups mandated to work for community and social development need partnerships that involve constant dialogue and communication at all levels of society to enhance and promote the spirit of cooperation. The Department as the lead government agency in social and community development must play a key role in promoting and creating dialogue and partnership.

Human Rights

Beneficiaries and agencies involved in and with community development projects and programs must be clear about their rights and obligations and the potential costs and benefits.

Sustainable Development

The programs aimed at communities must be sustained in the long run, enabling continuing benefits.  Knowledge, skills, capacities, infrastructure etc., resulting from a development process must be maintained continuously and should remain in the communities for future use.
