Mission

Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid organization working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and people living in situations of extreme vulnerability, taking action and bearing witness in order to respond to their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Notes from the nonprofit

A critical part of our "listening" involves an important whistleblowing tool called EthicsPoint. This is available to anyone (beneficiary, staff, partner...) and is visible across all websites and physical project sites. To learn more, visit: https://hi.org/en/reporting-form Humanity & Inclusions ’s institutional policies set out the principles to be respected by all of its employees and partners. HI's gender, protection of program participants, and child protection policies are accompanied by a code of conduct which applies to all those representing the organization (employees, people accompanying expatriate staff, consultants, service providers, partner organizations, interns and voluntary workers). Whenever local legislation permits, Humanity & Inclusion incorporates this code of conduct into employment contracts and internal rules of procedure. For a complete look at Humanity & Inclusion's institutional policies and codes of conduct visit www.hi.org/en/institutional-policies

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

People with disabilities have the same rights and needs as everyone else. But freedom and equality are far from being the reality for the more than 1.3 billion people with disabilities, who make up 16% of the world's population. 80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries, and one in five of the world's lowest-income individuals is living with a disability.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mine Action

Landmines and other explosive remnants of war (ERW) are a significant cause of disability and death. Humanity & Inclusion has evolved into the world's most comprehensive humanitarian mine action organization with active programs in more than a dozen countries. We advocate for the ban of indiscriminate weapons and were a co-recipient of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize for our work to ban landmines as Handicap International.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

Humanity & Inclusion responds to emergencies caused by natural disasters, such as storms and earthquakes, as well as crises caused by conflict. Our emergency teams act with a keen eye on assisting the most vulnerable victims. Our actions include providing rehabilitation to the injured and basic aid to the vulnerable, as well as coordination of logistics to help distribute relief with other emergency response organizations.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
People with disabilities
Chronically ill people
Older adults
Immigrants and migrants

Since 1982, rehabilitation projects have formed a key part of our work. Our approach to rehabilitation is person centered—recognizing individual needs and taking into account specific situations, environments, and available local services. We work alongside partners, including health, rehabilitation, and disability stakeholders, to build local and national capacity.

Population(s) Served
People with physical disabilities

Access to health care is an essential step toward social inclusion. Whether through preventing disabling diseases, helping to create local health services, or providing psychological support, all of Humanity & Inclusion's actions serve one purpose: to ensure that every man, woman, and child has the right to enjoy the highest attainable standard of health.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities

People with disabilities account for roughly 15% of the world's population—more than one billion people. A staggering 80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries, where as few as 2% of children with disabilities attend school. We work diligently to see people with disabilities welcomed as equals and able to realize their human rights.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

HI's 10-year international strategy has 3 priority actions:

1. Inclusion of people with disabilities and other populations in need.
2. Inclusive emergency responses adapted to the needs of the population.
3. Reducing the impact of conflicts on civilians.

Social missions: Pursue inclusive, universal access to services; develop support and advisory services for companies and governments to implement inclusive policies and services; encourage the global production of disability data; develop inclusive humanitarian responses; reduce the risks associated with conventional weapons and strengthen the resilience of populations affected by climate risks and conflicts; focus advocacy efforts on clear priorities to inclusive key international policy frameworks

Resources and capacity: Improve brand recognition; increase institutional and private funds; broaden our impact through partnerships and consortia

Organizational culture: Finance development and transformation through a simplification of our structure and better negotiation of purchases; Recruit, develop and retain staff; foster diversity and professional development; nationalize/localize field positions; Identify, adapt and implement good practices including our information systems and environmental agenda; seek out open innovation opportunities; Find solutions adapted to each context that facilitate links between emergency and development projects

Humanity & Inclusion has a global budget of $272 million, with a global workforce of 4,800 people including experts in social and economic inclusion, health, rehabilitation, safeguarding and risk reduction, armed violence reduction, emergency response, advocacy, fundraising and more.

In 2022, HI operated 466 projects in 60 countries worldwide, directly supporting more than 2.5 million people and indirectly supporting nearly 12 million individuals.

HI experts have carried out inclusive emergency response actions to a variety of emergencies including the 2021 Pakistan floods, 2022 Ukraine conflict, 2023 Syria earthquake, 2024 Israel-Hamas conflict.

HI's advocacy teams supported the creation of a political declaration against the use of explosive weapons in populated areas, which was endorsed by 83 states in November 2022.
