Our collective superpower.

Foreign aid today is often siloed.

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

But HUMANITE is different.

Your membership joins you with friends who are already local. HUMANITE is fluent in the conflicts you're longing to heal.

HUMANITE sees people to love. Not problems to solve. And people need peace. Not piecemeal help.

🖐 These are my values, too!

After all but hope is gone.

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

Communities trust the locals who invest in them. And they see how your membership helps HUMANITE stay 'til the end.

By the time a ceasefire is brokered, your membership has already built years of trust.

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