Transparency

All We Can is committed to transparency in all of areas of our work.

International Aid Transparency Initiative

We publish data on some of our projects in accordance with the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) standard. IATI is a multi-stakeholder initiative to help implement the transparency commitments of the Accra Agenda for Action, arising from the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness. To read more about IATI, please visit the IATI standard website.

If you would like more information about All We Can’s former DFID funded projects, please see the objectives of the projects here and an overview of each project in the IATI registry:

While All We Can adheres to the principle of full disclosure in publishing information about its work, there are a small number of exclusions the organisation makes to protect its staff, partners and the value of its work. For more information read the All We Can Exclusion Policy 2014.

Stewardship of resources

All We Can takes seriously its responsibility to be a good steward of its resources. Not only do we do this by being prudent and effective in how we spend our money to fulfil our mission but also in how we protect and secure our future through the reserves that we retain. When choosing where to invest our reserves we are influenced by our need to steward our resources well and to uphold our values that stem from our Christian principles.

The mission and the ethical approach of the Central Finance Board of the Methodist Church (CFB) aligns with these intentions. The CFB seeks superior returns on the investments made, while ensuring that Christian ethical principles are upheld.  The CFB’s approach of avoiding investments in particular businesses and encouraging better practice in others, enables All We Can to hold investments which are consistent with its values. All We Can is an integral member of the Methodist family, and the CFB works in conjunction with the Methodist Church through the Joint Advisory Committee on the Ethics of Investment, which advises the CFB on ethical issues. This provides a unique and robust mechanism for testing ethical investment decisions against Christian theological principles.

Some of the recent activity by CFB has focused on environmental, human rights and business ethics issues. For example, it has focused on the impact of plastic waste on the environment, and scoped the nature of the challenge and some early suggestions for engagement with companies including Nestlé and Unilever to understand how they are responding. The CFB has also supported the launch of the Corporate Human Rights Benchmark and engaged with M&S following allegations of child labour within its Turkey supply chain.
