The strategies and manners that help grow the contributor base are
many, though having a clear mission statement is one of them. Other
are listed in the book Producing Open Source Software (readable on
producingoss.com) chapter 8 "Managing volunteers".

Each individual contributor probably has their own different
specialities and areas of interest (and maybe their own mission :) but
the declared objective helps people interact with the org.

On-topic again, the current banner on sugarlabs.org is "Sugar Labs
contributes to and helps maintain the award-winning Sugar Learning
Platform" which I'm 100% in line with, maybe with "and promoting the
adoption/diffusion/use of".
