Our core values
Lex Ferenda was created by a group of young lawyers that believed in change and in making change happen. We had the same core values, without which we could not make Lex Ferenda happen. At Lex Ferenda, any partner, staff or volunteer needs to share the same following values:
At Lex Ferenda, we fight for an open and transparent government. That’s why, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of transparency with our dealings with the government, the public, donors, partners, beneficiaries, and other interested parties. However, we do not disclose information that might be personal or proprietary. We strive to make public any financial information, governance structure, activities and partnerships. We are open for any public scrutiny and we make our best efforts to inform the public about our work and the origin and use of our resources.
We believe it’s important to invest in growing our organizations and our people. Therefore, we aim to provide ongoing training and new learning opportunities for board members, volunteers and staff. These investments ensure the continued strength of Lex Ferenda and the Albanian nonprofit sector as a whole, and also inspire donor confidence.
We encourage honesty and transparency while upholding ethical and professional standards. We take responsibility for our performance and aim to hold ourselves accountable, primarily to the Albanian society, but also to our partners and donors, staff and volunteers.
We work to make the Albanian public feel that, if they work and if they persist, irrespective of failures, they can make change happen.
