Mission & Values

Our Mission

Humanity First is an international charitable trust established to promote and safeguard the preservation of human life and dignity. It is a non-political, non-sectarian, non-religious international relief and development agency that works with the world's poorest and most vulnerable people.

Humanity First was established in the UK in the early 1990's, and now has operations in 33 countries. Most aid workers and the management of Humanity First are unpaid volunteers and our administrative expenses are negligable. We are able to deliver significantly more aid value in the field to the funds we raise because our labour costs are very low.

Our Values

» Efficient : We achieve a massive return on donations by exploiting a pool of expert volunteers and global sourcing resulting in the majority of funds going directly to field projects

» Collaborative : We work with local authorities and other NGOs in a spirit of partnership to achieve the best outcomes

» Global and Local : We combine global expertise and resources with local knowledge of needs and culture to maximise the impact of our work
