Our vision is to promote and support the development of human values throughout the world.  Through a variety of service projects aimed at social transformation and upliftment, IAHV works towards sustainable peace and harmony for all.

We believe:

All human beings
are equal.


Responsibility and an attitude of selfless service are the foundation of true empowerment.


Peace, happiness and compassion are the intrinsic nature of 
human beings.


Socio-economic development must be built on human values to be sustainable.


Incorporation of human values into all aspects of life will ultimately lead to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.

Vision & Mission

Our  Mission

IAHV offers programs to reduce stress and develop leaders so that human values can flourish in people and communities. We foster the daily practice of human values – a sense of connectedness and respect for all people and the natural environment, an attitude of non-violence, and an ethic of social service. Our programs enhance clarity of mind, shift attitudes and behaviors, and develop leaders and communities that are resilient, responsible, and inspired.
