The Omega Schools model thrives on key principles:
Thinking With Our Hearts
Omega is a for-profit business but we are careful not to forget our social mission of empowering the aspirations of low income families and their communities. We have deep respect and responsibility towards all our stakeholders – the children, parents, teachers and the communities where we work. Our decisions and actions should be in the interest of the most vulnerable. We are careful not to fall to ‘group think’ or the status quo.
Every Child Matters
We want to empower the aspirations of every child and give them a valuable education with which they can improve their lives. Our motto is “Every Child Matters,” which means:
- We recognize the value of every child as a human being created in the image of God.
- We treat every child with common courtesy.
- We believe every child has something that no other child has.
- We believe every child can learn, and that children have unique learning styles.
- We become successful when all our children are able to learn.
Every Cedi Counts
We operate in a ‘sachet economy’ where parents make daily sacrifices to send their children to our schools. We do not take these sacrifices for granted as we believe we can only thrive on their daily vote of confidence. We strive to be the lowest cost private schools in our chosen markets.
We work as a team to achieve our goals, which means we respect, trust, support, and communicate openly with each other. We value the voices of every team member.
We are continuously seeking to improve both what we do and how we do it. We hold ourselves to a high standard of conduct and performance. We set goals as an organization and as professionals and support each other in reaching those goals. We give and receive feedback, and constantly work to improve our performance as individuals and as an organization.
Our business model leverages scale, reducing costs to a level that can dramatically extend access and improve quality.
Honest and Ethical Practices
We comply with laws and regulations, and we seek the interest of the larger society. We support our students and employees in doing the right thing.
