  • A flexible and innovative approach in program design and implementation, which allows full respect for contextual and cultural factors

  • Special attention to the cross-cutting issues of gender and child and youth protection and well-being

  • Ongoing evaluation of program effectiveness and incorporation of best practices and standards
