Values: Drosos Foundation sees itself as an organisation characterised by a willingness to learn, social entrepreneurship and a business-like philanthropy. It derives its effectiveness from the technical and project management skills of its employees. The Foundation is built on the values of peaceful cooperation  and human dignity and expects its partner organisations, their sub-partners and their employees to refrain from any actions or public statements that contradict these values.

Partners: The Foundation values mutual collaboration and applies  a partnership approach. It assists and advises partner  organisations during the development of a project and  ensures comprehensive support, monitoring and evaluation is provided for the implementation of a project.

In its partner organisations, the Foundation attaches great importance to a social entrepreneurship mindset as well as to fairness, transparency and personal accountability. It expects its partners to display a willingness to learn,  commitment and a desire to reflect on and continuously  improve their performance.

Procedure: At the invitation of the Foundation, project ideas are submitted first as a draft concept. After the concept has been studied and accepted, a full project proposal is developed by the partner.The Foundation Board approves project proposals.

Visibility: The Foundation informs the public of its activities. The projects supported by the Foundation are at the forefront of its external communication. Partner organisations are encouraged to keep the general  public continually informed about the work of their projects  and their objectives as well as about the cooperation with Drosos Foundation, insofar as the circumstances of the project’s work allow.
