Humentum’s network of over 300 member organizations, not-for-profit and for-profit alike, include the world’s largest and most productive implementers of foreign assistance globally. On our membership’s behalf, Humentum undertakes targeted outreach and advocacy with donor agencies in the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe. In this work, we identify obstacles to the effective implementation of foreign assistance, articulate our member’s first-hand experiences, and propose dialogue and solutions that enable positive change.
At the global systems level, we advocate for and co-create sector-wide solutions, such as a global accounting standard for non-profit organizations and a system of certification credentials for common operational competencies. As a global network, our approach enables us to work with donors, networks of development implementers, and hundreds of local organizations—either directly or as sub-awardees of our members and partners. At the organizational level, our approach is focused on increasing the impact, cost effectiveness and ethical stewardship of aid programs through efficient program delivery, strong financial management, regulatory compliance, and the elimination of waste, fraud, and the diversion of funding. Through targeted advocacy to address members’ operational needs, Humentum strengthens the delivery of aid.
