Oath For Compassionate Helpers



THE OATH FOR COMPASSIONATE HELPERS

I will never do for others what they have the capacity to do for themselves. 

I will limit one-way giving to crises and seek always to find ways for legitimate exchange. 

I will seek ways to empower by hiring, lending, and investing and offer gifts as incentives to celebrate achievements. 

I will put the interests of those experiencing poverty above my own even when it means setting aside my own agenda or the agenda of my organization. 

I will listen carefully, even to not what is being said knowing that unspoken feelings may contain essential clues to healthy engagement. 

And, above all, to the best of my ability, 

I WILL DO NO HARM.
