How we do it

Mission East strives to reach the most vulnerable people in need of help. We go ‘the extra mile’ to reach our beneficiaries – whether they are located beyond the remotest mountain range or close to a war zone. This also means that we stay on when the world’s attention has moved on to ensure that the job is thoroughly done.   

We help the underserved that others don’t reach out to, because we value the individual and aim to leave no-one behind. We strive to be as effective as possible and ensure that the neediest receive and utilise the help we provide. We empower people and communities in crisis-affected countries to lift themselves out of poverty and marginalisation.

Quality standards

Mission East subscribes to a range of quality and accountability commitments. They are primarily intended to support the delivery of quality aid, assistance, and services. In 2017, Mission East received the Certificate of Compliance with the Core Humanitarian Standard. This certification has so far only been awarded to a few agencies carrying out work of the highest quality. The two other core quality standards for our programmes are the Red Cross Code of Conduct and the Sphere Project standards.

All Mission East staff are committed to uphold the humanitarian principles, Mission East values and standards of conduct expressed in the Mission East Code of Conduct.  

We publish an annual complaints report which can be found on the publications section of our website - here

Complain to Mission East

The UN Sustainable Development Goals

The core principle of “leaving no-one behind” that applies to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is extremely relevant to the work of Mission East and our vision of empowering people in crisis-affected communities to lift themselves out of poverty and marginalisation. Many of the 17 SDGs are covered in our programmes. We especially focus on these goals: 1. No Poverty; 2. Zero Hunger; 5. Gender Equality; 6. Clean Water and Sanitation; 10. Reduced Inequalities; 16. Strong and inclusive institutions; and 17. Partnerships for the Goals

Reviews and evaluations

Mission East is committed to learning from our interventions and activities. We regularly conduct reviews and evaluations of our programmes to continuously improve all that we do and to ensure that our approaches are making a real difference for people in need.
