Be a lifeline to those forced to abandon their home.

In times of war, civilian populations are often the targets of incessant bombing attacks. Explosive remnants of war, which are sometimes left for years after a conflict has ended, can be triggered by the slightest misstep. They destroy lives and cause lasting trauma. For the past 35 years, HI has been working to protect communities ravaged by war.

Be a lifeline to those facing barriers at every turn.

Access to education is a human right, yet many children do not go to school. A third of them are children with disabilities. Humanity & Inclusion believes that education is one of the best weapons to fight exclusion and stigma. Since 1999, our teams have been working to enable children with disabilities to attend school so they can build futures for themselves and change attitudes.

Be a lifeline to those forced to abandon their home.

HI was born in a Thai refugee camp on the border with Cambodia. For the 160,000 survivors of the Khmer Rouge regime who had sought refuge there, life was hard. They were uprooted, injured, and traumatized by the years of civil war. Their physical, psychological, and social reconstruction was slow and often painful. HI’s teams were there to support them.

Be a lifeline to those facing barriers at every turn.

For the past 35 years, HI has been working to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities and vulnerable groups because we believe that there is a place for everyone in society. We strive to "make the invisible visible,” meet their essential needs, and improve their living conditions.
