A Commitment to Partnership and Impacts

Our overriding ambition in developing our strategic plan is to increase PLEDGE’s impact and effectiveness as a partner in the fight against poverty. This builds on PLEDGE’s previous and current strategic plans from inception.

Across the confederation, there is a consensus that our vision and mission remain as inspiring, valid, and relevant today as when they were first articulated. Similarly, there is agreement that the former strategic plan delivered significant progress in several vital priorities: PLEDGE’s programming principles, the launch of the new Brand, and piloting an alternative management model in the North & East.

We are, therefore, not starting from scratch but seeking to capitalize on our expertise, experience, and earlier analysis to achieve a more significant impact in our poverty-fighting programs, emergency response, and advocacy.

Strong together

One of the key ways we can achieve a more significant impact and become more effective in the fight against poverty is to partner with like-minded associations and donors, as we can do better together rather than individually, leveraging the extensive reach and global force of diaspora organization. As an accommodating confederation open to suggestions and contributions, we need to identify synergies and find the best ways of working together and with our partners.

That is the role the strategic plan seeks to fulfill. All five of the strategic directions in the plan are focused on ensuring we maximize the PLEGE confederation’s potential to impact poverty in collaboration with partners and donors.

How the plan was developed

The strategic plan results from a year-long, extensive consultation between the PLEDGE Board, the Staff, partners, and various external stakeholders.

Each program has been reviewed with information gathered by conducting need analysis studies in the villages in association with the GA offices providing authentic databases.


Values encompass our whole organisation – whatever we do will always be guided by our values. Our Values act as an internal guide for our functions. The importance of our organization is reflected in everything we undertake – how we manage volunteers, treat our sponsors, stakeholders, and the quality of the service we provide to those in need.

In ethics, value denotes something’s degree of importance to determine what action in life is best and significantly impacts the community. It deals with proper conduct and good life in the sense that a highly, or at least relatively highly, valuable action may be regarded as ethically “good.”

Our organisations also have a series of values that relate to our social aims – those that drive our work. These might include:

  • Honor and respect individuals, organisations, partners, and volunteers for their time. They are sharing ideas and their efforts towards making a difference in communities.
  • Integrity and honesty in dealing with all members of the community.
  • Respect for the rights, differences, and dignity of others.
  • Maintain open and transparent communication with all our members and partners.
  • Caring for the local community and concern for the environment.
  • We are creating opportunities for disadvantaged people.
  • They are giving back community donations to meet social aims.
