- Diversity and Inclusion:

Watad Group believes that it must represent the communities in which it exists and works actively to welcome all individuals without discrimination, and this diversity should not only be reflected in the membership but should also be reflected in the methods and programs used in our work.

 

- Social Impact:

Scouts should participate in community service and exchange experiences with others to inspire them. Therefore, Watad group contributes to this process in the beneficiaries’ communities to become leaders of positive change.

 

 - Communication and external relations:

Watad Group must accurately visualize what it does, reflecting shared values in social work, using the most influential communication methods as well as engaging in strategically relevant partnerships.

 

- Governance:

Watad group believes that our governance process must be transparent, effective, and linked to the values and our strategy is comprehensive and focuses on achieving our mission and vision.
