The primary objective of our projects is to find a durable solution to the plight of the target beneficiaries by empowering them through formal and non-formal education including, skills training, social enterprising, life skills, psychosocial counseling and general education. The goal is to help our beneficiaries reduce dependency and overcome obstacles of social, economic and inter-cultural barriers. We believe the best way to achieve these goals is by working "bottom-up". This is best expressed by our guidelines:

• A project can only be successful if the beneficiaries (and stakeholders) participate in its formulation and implementation. This means that the ideas should come from the Liberians themselves. There are many talented and motivated people in Liberia, and there is a huge working force. Therefore, Liberians fully participate in all projects and the work is done by Liberians, for Liberians.
• PEP promotes shared leadership and responsibilities in all projects.
• We strive towards financial self-reliance and sustainability of projects. A project should be financially independent to be called sustainable. If possible, projects should be self-sufficient within 1 year; for particular situations our maximum of 3 years is applicable.
• All administrations are transparent; this means that stakeholders can have a look in the bookkeeping. Everybody is involved and everybody is responsible.
• Projects are carried out with minimal financial investments, so the projects are reproducible and can serve as an example for those Liberians who want to start their own project.
• Projects contribute to the development of Liberia and poverty reduction on the longer term. PEP's work is concentrated on total empowerment of its target beneficiaries and sustainable development in general.
