NRC is a strongly principled organisation. We believe in transparency and hold ourselves accountable to our donors, partners, staff and the displaced people we serve. To maintain the integrity of our work, we adhere to these principles:
Non-discrimination and respect for human dignity:
We are dedicated to providing support for the most vulnerable – regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion, political views or disabilities.
We ensure that details on how we work and where our funds go are accessible and visible. Our information aligns with the standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). Read more about our commitment to accountability.
Corruption, theft and mismanagement are common in many of the countries where we operate. NRC has robust anti-corruption and risk management systems. We hold our partners to the same high standards.
More than 90 per cent of NRC's costs are used in the crisis-affected countries where we operate. NRC’s current administrative costs average between 9-10% of our global budget. Read more about our finances.
Our partners share our values on human rights, employees' rights, the environment and anticorruption. We don't partner with companies whose main business comes from
weapons sales, alcohol or tobacco related products. Read our Ethical Guidelines on corporate partnerships.
Monitoring and evaluation:
We routinely reflect on our experiences and projects in the field, critically assessing our projects at the field and management levels.
At NRC, we take pride in the principles of our humanitarian action.
Stories from the field
Statoil donates 4 million NOK for the Norwegian Refugee Council’s work in Syria
15 March brought Syria into its eighth year of conflict. Seven years of war has left the population in dire need of basic assistance. More than 11 million Syrians are displaced from their homes, over 13 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, 7 million people are unable to eat regularly and 4.9 million people are trapped in besieged or hard to reach areas.
Learning a new skill against all odds
Istarlin is a 17-year-old who has lived in Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp since 2009. She is funny, easy to talk to and a class favourite. She is also visually impaired.
How to give effectively (and why it is a good idea)
I found myself in the middle of the desert, standing in a white sea of shacks. Walls encircled the camp and sand swirled rhythmically outside, like a guard patrolling the perimeter. This was the Zaatari refugee camp— four kilometres of land housing 70,000 refugees.
