Governance

ALERT adopts best practices in governance as part of their strategy. ALERT strongly believes that it is all the more important to run social organizations with non-negotiable values such as accountability, transparency and with a ‘means is as important as the end’ outlook.

ALERT adopts this approach with every stakeholder that it works with may it be volunteers, employees, vendors or any other partner.
