The Purpose of this Principles Paper is to strengthen and guide DFID’s future relationship and collaboration with faith groups on international development.


The key Principles of the Partnership between faith groups and DFID are transparency, mutual respect and understanding. The areas in which these Principles will be applied include: building a common understanding of faith and development; documenting the impact of faith groups through research and evaluation; and, working on difficult themes and areas to find effective ways to progress development and bring about transformational change in the lives of the poor.
