Our Mission

At the Humanitarian Forum we have a vision. A vision of a world in which there is trust between communities and the potential of aid is maximised. And so our mission is to improve the lives of those in need and relations between communities, through trust building and quality humanitarian action, both internationally and locally in a global network of peers. We want to promote hope in humanity, by creating a conducive, unbiased and safe environment for the implementation of technically sound and principled humanitarian action. Our purpose is to provide a platform for dialogue, to promote mutual understanding, to support capacity building and development of humanitarian and development organisations, and to advocate for a legal framework for greater transparency and accountability.



The Humanitarian Forum’s objectives are to promote the efficiency and effectiveness of charities and the efficient use of charitable resources, for the benefit of the public, throughout the world by providing information, guidance, training, technical and professional support and assistance to NGOs, charities and other organizations established to further charitable purposes.
