This policy aims to establish and maintain an inclusive environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences.

1. Purpose and Scope
The Non-Discrimination Policy applies to all aspects of the Foundation’s operations and programs, including but not limited to recruitment, employment, promotion, compensation, benefits, training, services provided, and volunteer participation. This policy also extends to the Foundation’s interactions with the broader community, including partners, beneficiaries, contractors, vendors, and stakeholders.

We affirm our commitment to provide equal opportunities in all areas of employment and to administer all its activities, programs, and services free from bias and discrimination.
