Change is hard. 

Humanitarian Institute was born from years of field experience that demonstrated the industry's struggle with outcomes. Pressure from donors, limited staff capacity, difficulties with data analysis... many variables influence a sector made up of thousands of actors.

We're shaping tomorrow.

Providing services that challenge the status quo.Humanitarian Institute takes individuals and organisations on learning journeys that achieve results through sustainable practice. We build skills in areas such as program and project design, co-design, execution and delivery. We motivate you to think critically and be an active participant in the process. Our curricula and support services prepare you and your organisation for success - blending a thorough understanding of academic principles with innovations in hands-on implementation.

Our services deliver comprehensive results tailored to context and functional needs. We leverage our expertise and extensive library of learning assets to build key functional and leadership capabilities.

The world is changing
