To recognize and value the potential of local resource and traditional wisdom of people.
To focus on the receiver’s dignity instead of the donor’s pride.
To promote circular economy by ensuring maximum use of each material.
To collaborate with partner organizations to increase effectiveness and scale.
TO VIEW EVERY ENTITY AS EQUAL STAKEHOLDER IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT RATHER THAN OBSERVING HIERARCHICAL RELATIONSHIPS.
IN THE RACE OF DEVELOPMENT WE ALL ARE TOO FOCUSED ON MACHINES I.E. THE BIG, KNOWN ISSUES, IGNORING THE NEEDLES- THE MOST IMPORTANT BASIC NEEDS.
AT NSM OUR FOCUS IS ON THE NEEDLES.. I.E THE SMALL NEGLECTED NEEDS WHILE THE WORLD FOCUSES ON THE BIG MACHINES. WITH A LARGE SCALE CIVIC PARTICIPATION, IT IS BECOMING A BIG PEOPLE’S MOVEMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT.
