Our values go beyond our internal procedures, guiding our impact and interventions to ensure that we create a synergy of excellence in our endeavor to make a lasting impact on society.
We believe inclusivity is the cornerstone of a strong democracy, and that is why we encourage all stakeholders — most importantly women, along with other marginalized segments— to participate in our activities to a great extent.
We build sustainable partnerships and networks, and we consider them critical components of our goal to have the voices of our citizens heard. We also ensure that citizens can work with us to pursue improved governance and prosperity in Pakistan.
We believe we can make the most significant impact by working with the system, with every stakeholder, and with every democratic institution. Therefore, we do not align ourselves with any political party.
We take great pride in our ethos of transparency and full disclosure. TDEA is entirely open to and welcomes public accountability concerning our work, performance, and conduct.
We are an organization that values empirical evidence above all else. We structure our interventions according to facts and reason. All of our public positions and statements are backed by extensive research.
Rule of Law
We adhere to all rules and regulations imposed by Pakistan’s constitution and the law.
We do not discriminate, nor condone any form of discrimination, whether that be on the basis of caste, color, ethnicity, creed, gender, religious belief, political affiliation, linguistic background, marital status, sexual orientation, age, or physical disability.
We believe in constant evolution and growth as an organization. We encourage innovation and creativity and ensure that our activities revolve around best management practices and standards.
Commitment to Democracy
We pursue the improvement of democracy in the country and ensure that our organization is democratic to the core. We encourage democratic decision-making in all our programs and our management of TDEA.
