We believe that integrity is vital to every aspect of our work. We strive for honesty, professionalism and bringing our best effort to all that we do.

Respect and Collaboration

We promote mutual respect as well as open, collaborative relationships within the CTAOP team and with our supporters, partners, and grantees.

Continuous Learning

We strive to foster an atmosphere that supports continuous learning, enhancement of both individual and group impact as well as reflective candid evaluations of our work and the work of our grantees.


We embrace the spirit of an explorer – open to creative and engaging new approaches, taking risks and nimbly adapting to unanticipated challenges and changing environments.

The Spirit of Ubuntu – “I am because we are.”

Ubuntu refers to our interconnectedness as human beings. In the spirit of Ubuntu, we believe in the equality of all human beings and the responsibility to help each other.
