Our Core Values

AFT is embedded in a set of core values which guide us in all aspects of the trust.


All volunteers of Assuon Foundation Trust participate through the spirit of volunteerism. It means that not a single person is paid a salary, stipend, honorarium or any form of financial reimbursement. There is also no paid membership to be an AFT volunteer. We believe that it has been possible for many to participate as volunteers for many reasons, but mainly because, first – most of the volunteers are professionals; second – core values resonate with volunteers who do join and third – because volunteer lives are enriched by being of service to others.

Non – Hierarchical

No volunteer has to deal with bureaucracy to participate. Assuon Foundation Trust is a collective of socially conscious individuals participating through a common goal. No individual has more say than another. While leadership is very important, we strongly discourage a personality driven environment.

Collective Decision

All decisions are made by Assuon Foundation Trust trustees and volunteers through meetings, conference calls or emails where every volunteer has an equal say in the decision.

Very Low Organizational Overheads

Since there are no paid staff and no office rent, we are able to keep a very low overhead for administrative expense. This minimal overhead entails the credit card transaction fees that are imposed by the credit card processing company, banking fee, stationery and other incidental expenses. AFT’s overheads are typically in the range of 1.5% to 2.3% of our revenues.

Non – Discriminatory

AFT does not discriminate in its membership or in its selection of philanthropic project activity, on the basis of gender, race, colour, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, lifestyle etc. AFT welcomes any volunteer from any nation for any support ranging from teaching to fund rising.


Mutual Respect

AFT believes in respect for others policy. Whenever there is any disagreement, everyone should respond in a respectful manner, focusing on the issue rather than the individual. Communicating in a respectful manner builds a constructive environment to resolve conflicts.

Financial Responsibility

Assuon Foundation Trust operates on zero tolerance on embezzlement of funds. It is our will to submit financial statement in a complete and timely manner and adhere to the law to maintain non-profit or charitable status.
