The quality flower represents balancing the five Better Lives aspects of quality: managed risks, mutual relationships, cooperative schedule, sustainable budget and holistic design.
We can deliver predictable solutions when we balance these aspects. We build relationships and cooperate with disadvantaged families, schools and communities to develop and implement quality solutions for self-sufficiency.
Managed Risks – that are understood, planned for and monitored, so that the solutions and productive assets deliver predictable outputs and outcomes.
Mutual Relationships – that are long term and based on trust that is developed through relating to each other with empathy, respect, reflection and considered responses.
Cooperative Schedule – with our partners, who do the same with families, schools and communities, to understand people’s challenges and the root causes of those challenges.
Sustainable Budget – by the families themselves throughout the life cycle of the solution, enabling them to move towards food, income, home and education self-sufficiency.
Holistic Design – combines people, process and parts to create solutions for self-sufficiency that address the root causes of challenges.
A collaborative solution brings together feelings of ownership and goodwill that are fueled by sharing of knowledge. Solutions are collaboratively designed with our partners, families, schools and communities so that the root cause of the need is understood and addressed.
A sustainable solution provides predictable, continuously improving value so that it can be sustained by families and communities throughout it’s life.
A holistic solution brings together people, process and parts to create solutions that address the root causes of challenges to achieving self-sufficiency.
