Our values

Common good

We define the common good as the set of moral, cultural, legal, political, social and economic conditions that allow each member of the community to fully develop and achieve their goals.

Solidarity

Is the natural link which serves as the basis of mutual support and social responsibility. Solidarity leads to the harmonious integration of individuals and society.

Social Justice

A socially just society is based on the principles of equality and solidarity; the socially just society both understands and values human rights, and recognizes the dignity of every human being. In a society made up of unequal circumstances, some deficiencies and needs are remedied by the possibilities of others.

Giving

Capacity to share without expecting anything in return. The privilege of providing help to those who need it without further compensation than just the satisfaction of helping.
