The ten20 Foundation was recently asked “what are the questions that guide your practice?”

Here are some from our list:

  1. What beliefs, values and theories underlie our philanthropic practice?
  2. What is the nature of our role and how do we negotiate our expectations with communities and partner organisations and respectfully establish boundaries on what we will and won’t do?
  3. How do we ensure fair, inclusive processes in our work with each other and with communities?
  4. How do we build capacity in ourselves to undertake the work and then assist communities in building that capacity?
  5. How can we best share our learnings with others?
  6. How do we develop a sense of responsibility and accountability to each other and to the shared agenda for change?
