Dorcas intersects five areas with the main project without losing focus of the main goal.
Environmental change is a very urgent matter that visibly affects the communities we work in. Within Dorcas interventions, actions are continuously taken to adjust to climate change, counter environmental degradation, minimize risk from disasters and even improve the (enabling) environment.

Dorcas’ commitment to promoting gender equality has been deeply embedded in our way of working for many years. We want to contribute to increased gender equality by ending discrimination against women and girls, eliminating forms of violence and harmful practices, restoring self-esteem and creating equal access to services and opportunities for economic participation.

Dorcas is a Christian organisation with biblical values. Faith@Work expresses our desire to work God’s way and that His principles of work will be applied in all approaches and intervention areas of our way of working.
Dorcas wants to support peacebuilding processes in (post) conflict communities and mitigate the risk of relapse into conflict by addressing root causes of conflict and restoring broken relationships by fostering reconciliation.
Social inclusion is an essential component of Dorcas work. We want to address and reverse the social exclusion and stigmatization of individuals or groups in society, to enhance equality and social protection both in our programs, as well as in society.
