Human rights and justice: All our work is based on respect for the inherent worth and dignity of all people, and the rights that follow from this understanding.

Transparency and accountability: GLOMEF provide and expects to access and deliver clear, accurate and up-to-date information with regard to development. high standards and seek to hold others to similar standards as the ones we set for ourselves.

Sustainability: GLOMEF is committed to development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to take charge and meet their own needs. By empowering individuals, networks and the communities we serve, we believe that the benefits of our work will be enduring.

Cooperation and partnership: We respect the wishes and requirements of our members and networks ‟ and the communities we serve ‟ and we endeavour to create a shared voice, working together in a manner that enables us to achieve our shared goals and live our shared values.

Peace: GLOMEF recognizes that peace is about more than the absence of conflict. GLOMEF strives for concord, harmony and tranquillity ‟ a balance of power.

Equity: GLOMEF shares its own resources fairly and wants to see that the natural and intellectual wealth of Africa and for that matter Ghana is also distributed fairly, so that everyone can gain their share. We know that the success of development can be measured by how the least powerful people and the smallest minority groups are faring.


As the African Development Bank has stated “eliminating gender inequality and empowering women could raise the productive potential of one billion Africans, delivering a huge boost to the continent’s development potential.” Supporting women economic and leadership participation with access to economic ventures, leadership roles and safe homes help themselves and their families to escape poverty. Women are often marginalized in development and decisions making that affect their lives and the entire household. Women make up the majority of those who suffer disparities in the resource distribution affecting many aspects of their lives. Moreover, the damage from disasters, pandemics, and conflicts threatens women development. GLOMEF has adopted international standard safeguarding policies that promote women’s rights and development. Our communication strategies are gender sensitive and all community initiatives mainstream gender issues.
