The S.H.I.E.L.D framework is a principle led strategic framework developed by FXI to govern our longer term services and projects. SHIELD is underpinned and guided by internationally agreed human rights principles and best practice guidelines; it is designed to maximise positive impact and community participation, and to ensure that we “do no harm”
The framework relies on 6 main guiding principles/aspects that need to be ensured and emphasized in any project: Safety, Health, Information, Empowerment, Learning and Dignity.
We apply these principles to the design of our projects and activities and use them to monitor and evaluate our success. This ensures that any action taken will promote positive outcomes, and that we can consistently learn from and develop our work.
