Quality Assurance
Mission 21 attaches great importance to professionalism in its project and programme work. This work has to meet the internationally recognised standards of development cooperation.
Among these are the following principles:

  • Capacity building: enabling people to help themselves
  • Using resources in an efficient, environmentally friendly manner
  • Assuring the sustainability of the projects 
  • Project implementation without prejudice or discrimination: all people in the targeted zone are to benefit, irrespective of their religion, denomination, gender or ethnic affiliation 
  • Promotion of gender justice

The projects and programmes are planned and implemented with the participation of the project partners. The cooperation agreements with our partner churches and organisations contain clear targets and indicators which serve to measure the success of the projects. Mission 21's project work is continually evaluated from within the organisation as well as by external experts. Annual progress reports are part of this evaluation process. The responsible programme officers of Mission 21 keep in touch and communicate regularly with the project managers in the partner organisations. This accompaniment all through the different stages of a project (planning, implementation, evaluation, monitoring) is important for assuring the high quality of our project work. In addition, annual project visits by the responsible programme officers maintain and assure the exchange of information.
