OPERATING MODEL – CORE VALUES

The SA Foundation has 14 Core Values that drive its program and operational delivery. These values can be summed up in 3 key values that are enacted within the SA Foundation’s operating model:

SAF-Core-Values-Aug-14-page-0

1. Trust in the Lord. As a Christian organization we trust that the Lord is in charge of all our needs and growth. He brings forth leaders of His choosing when we disseminate the program and He provides the funds, through individuals, corporations, churches and events to meet the day to day and development needs we have. He also provides the healing our participants need to recover successfully.

2. Quality over Quantity. In our program delivery to sexually exploited women smaller numbers of participants are addressed per site so that they receive long-term, individualized, quality care. The result is a high success rate among a population with extreme barriers to reintegration.

3. Recovery is a Long-Term Process. People don’t end up broken overnight, nor do they get ‘fixed’ quickly. It takes time to heal. Therefore, the SA program model is designed to support our young women with increasing levels of independence for up to 7 years.
