Mission Enfance's ethics and integrity code

Solidarity and support to development, the main missions of Mission Enfance, are based on the respect of ethical values, from which the rules of functioning for the association and all the members of its organs derive. It also reflects the line of conduct that the association intends to keep towards all its partners.

  1. CHILDREN'S RIGHTS
    The Association contributes to the promotion of the Fundamental Rights of the child as recognised and expressed in the International Conventions in favour of children, according to the principle that the child is a full-fledged person, has rights and can claim them.
     
  2. PARTICIPATION
    The association designs, organises and manages all its actions by encouraging attention and consideration of the needs of the beneficiaries of its projects, particularly in the formulation of their requirements and the definition of solutions.
     
  3. EMPOWERMENT
    The association ensures that its projects do not lead to their beneficiaries’ dependency, on the contrary, it takes care to give them the tools to take charge of themselves autonomously.
     
  4. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
    The association designs its projects and programmes in such a way that they still produce their effects after their completion, while respecting the environment and working conditions.
     
  5. PARTNERSHIP
    Wherever possible, the association is committed to encouraging synergies with local partners, such as authorities, businesses, civil society organisations or local associations.
     
  6. SOLIDARITY AND SHARING
    The association applies and promotes the values of solidarity and sharing, in a spirit of disinterested cooperation.
     
  7. RESPECT
    The association shall at all times ensure that it respects the beliefs, traditions and customs of the countries in which it is active and does not discriminate in any way, in particular on the basis of gender, religious beliefs, political affiliation or social status.
     
  8. GENDER EQUALITY
    As soon as it becomes clear that women do not enjoy the same opportunities and rights as men, the association directs its programmes towards the education and empowerment of women.
     
  9. EFFECTIVENESS
    In order to guarantee the optimal allocation of its resources to the causes it defends, the association constantly evaluates the effectiveness of its projects and management and continually makes all the improvements it can.
     
  10. INDEPENDENCE AND PROBITY
    The association acts in a fair and impartial manner. It guarantees that its action is independent of all political opinions and conflicts of interest. It also guarantees that it refuses all donations from donors whose activities are not in accordance with the aims and values it defends, in particular the principles relating to child labour. It also refutes corruption in all its forms.
     
  11. ACCOUNTABILITY
    The association is accountable to funders, sponsors, funders and the public. It is transparent about where its funds come from and how they are used.
