The Values of a Co-operative
Co-operative is expected to include the following values in all the work that it undertakes.
For the democratic functioning of a Co-operative, every member must have an equal chance to participate.
Co-operative members should not rely on others to get the job done, they should work together to do it themselves.
Co-operative members should not rely on others to solve their problems, they should work together to find solutions themselves.
Co-operative members should not allow others to take charge of their business or blame others in the case of obstacles, they themselves are responsible for making their Co-operative work.
Co-operatives have a duty to help the community in which they live and work.
