What Our Alumni Say

Dixie, CEO

It's never too late to try your second road in life... I have learnt humanitarian work comes in a variety of ways.

Letitia, Finance

Fantastic, thought provoking course. I would encourage anyone, at any stage of their career or life, to take it if you're considering a career in the humanitarian sector.

Simon, IT

If you want to find out about how you can get into the humanitarian sector, and what that really means... then the Humanitarian Foundations Certificate is the course you need!


The narrative in our society is so often backwards. Why do we celebrate and reward individuals for inconsequential work, yet expect those working on our globe's most pressing issues to volunteer?

Cory Steinhauer, CEO and Founder
