What Makes Us Different

Holistic care.
Led by locals.

Foreign aid today is often siloed.

Mental health is detached from hunger. Camps lack economic opportunities. Bandaids instead of paths to wholeness. Something has gone terribly wrong.

But HUMANITE is different.

As a global collective of local donors, volunteers, and professionals like you, HUMANITE is dying to close the gaps made by war.

But where others might see problems to solve, HUMANITE sees neighbors to love. And people need peace. Not piecemeal help. 

That’s why every program is either building on, or building toward our long history of impact in a specific place. Holistic, full-cycle care helps remove the waste of foreign aid and increases your impact 10X!

Yes! I’m ready to help! ▸

Before War

To the ends
of the earth.

Conflicts often start in remote regions before spreading to cities or terrorism abroad.

HUMANITE works in hard-to-reach territories to stop violence before it starts.

Don't wait for a crisis. HUMANITE is already here, stopping violence before it starts.

Today’s wars are driven by those who feel they’ve lost as the world changes.

After all but hope is gone.

“After war” is a fragile time. Even more when locals see foreign aid move on before the job is done.

But communities trust the locals who invest in them. And they see how your monthly giving helps HUMANITE stay 'til the end.

By the time there’s a ceasefire, you’ve already built years of trust.

After war, your monthly giving fortifies peace, rebuilding home with displaced friends and bridging gaps they face getting back on their feet.
