THE FOUNDER'S PHILOSOPHY
Like the science that investigates the principles of reality, human nature, and conduct, the philosophy of the founder Benjamin Kalu Foundation as a charity organization was shaped by his experiences, especially at childhood. Though it has evolved over the years.
The key elements of it remains the following:
- BKF strives to meet the highest standard of transparency in both the selection of her area of needs, people of needs or project funding.
- BKF is not entangled by any alliances. We are not linked to any special interest, faction or political party but purely non – governmental and non-religious.
- It is our humanitarian service judgement that executive directors and project or community associates of BKF should handle the managerial functions of our non – profit organization independently of the founder but reporting to the management team who reports to the Board of trustees.
- In BKF we believe in non-profitability and accountability achieved through efficient modern non-governmental charity fund raising procedures with results reported periodically in our publicly published periodic audited financial reports.
- BFK believes that support does not have to be monetary, it could be in service (voluntary) or in materials specific to the people or area of needs.
- It is our believe that permanent or periodic partnership should be determined by the needs advocated by BKF and could be with individuals, corporations, other NGOs or even nations.
- BKF is not limited and should not be limited by geographical boundaries, religions or politics, while participation is open to all men, women and organizations determined to save the earth and humanity.
