Since 1970, DAI have worked in more than 150 countries—delivering results across the spectrum of international development contexts, from stable societies and high-growth economies to challenging environments racked by political or military conflict.
DAI’s mission is to make a lasting difference in the world by helping people improve their lives. They envision a world in which communities and societies become more prosperous, fairer and better governed, safer, healthier, and environmentally more sustainable.
In everything they do, they live by four core values:
- Integrity: they have an uncompromising commitment to civility and ethical behaviour. They play by the rules and do the right thing.
- Responsibility: they are accountable to their clients, their colleagues, and the communities where they work.
- Excellence: They celebrate innovation, learning, and service. They have an unwavering desire to “stretch,” as individuals and as an organization.
- Global Citizenship: They are a global company with a global outlook. They depend on their diversity, respect the cultures in which they work, and treat everyone, everywhere with professionalism and dignity.
