The FOSEP is a non-profit organization and works through a strong Governing Body which formulates its policies, plans and programmes and evaluates its performance for each project that has been completed. The feedback from beneficiaries and the criticisms and suggestions from its members form the basis of changes that are required to be introduced in future programmes. The credibility that it has earned from the public is because of the accountability and transparency which constitutes its core working philosophy.
