Our Core Values
OutMost Media Development has an unwavering commitment to our core values and principles:
Access to information is a human right
Information and education are critical to the health, safety, and dignity of all communities.
During periods of crisis, timely and accurate information is essential to ending conflicts, securing food,
medicine, shelter, and emergency services.
We believe in the power of storytelling and the simple, wonderful magic of the radio/TV dramas.
Audio and visual storytelling transcends language and literacy, communicating crucial
information while providing sustenance for the soul. For communities experiencing trauma and starved for hope,
the power of film, of a story well told, of a spectacle, of an adventure, or romance can open people's hearts
and minds, rekindling joy and helping people heal. This is especially true for children, who constitute half
of the world's forcibly displaced people.
Communities are the source of wisdom and the center of empowerment.
We value a participatory, culturally respectful, and inclusive approach to social change.
A community that speaks for itself is a community that can change and heal itself. OutMost Media Development
believes in engaging communities in assessing their own needs and in managing, implementing, and evaluating
the programs designed to meet those needs. We are committed to building skills and capacity in the communities
we work with, laying the foundation for greater resilience and increased self-reliance.
Humanitarian principles are the basis of all our work.
We are committed to addressing human suffering wherever we are able. We are dedicated to helping
save lives, supporting physical and psychosocial well-being, and promoting dignity and human rights.
