Humana People to People

''The Humana People to People Federation has 30 independent member associations on five continents.''

The Humana People to People Federation is a network of 30 non-profit associations involved in solidarity, cooperation and international development.

Born from a progressive education movement in the 1970s, Humana People to People has, at its roots, a commitment to address some of the world’s major humanitarian, social and environmental challenges. It works as a collective, supporting people to make changes, improve their lives and help solve the problems they face.

The Federation Humana People to People was formed in 1996 by the then 16 national associations in Europe and Africa to strengthen cooperation and the impact of their work. Today, the Federation Humana People to People has 30 independent member associations on five continents.

These members share a set of values to protect the planet, develop communities and support people to join forces and thus increase their potential for positive change and action. These values are also shared by the numerous international partners who supported this work.

The UN Agenda 2030 continues to guide the activities of Humana People to People and its members, and together with the international community and global leaders, we will continue our efforts to help countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in hope of alleviating suffering and creating lasting positive changes for the world’s population.


The Development Instructors (DIs) programme makes it possible for people to participate in the creation of development through Humana People to People projects.

Development Instructors come from all over the world and are trained in the hope that they will contribute with their skills and dedication, side by side with others, to a more dynamic project development.

In various projects, DIs prepare and lead various practical activities such as preparing and supporting community events and implementing outreach activities with students and their teachers, maintenance, garden cleaning, working for the wellbeing of children through the creation of healthy menus and the management of resources received to improve the quality of food and general living conditions, as well as working side by side with project leaders in the implementation of the activities.
