Who we are

We are a network of highly motivated humanitarian professionals with an extensive experience achieved throughout our work in many International NGOs, International Organizations and various actors that operate on the humanitarian scenario.


We believe in a world where the most vulnerable populations affected by humanitarian crisis receive timely quality assistance and are ensuered respect of their rights and the dignity they deserve.


By putting people at the centre of our action, we strengthen the capacity of humanitarian actors through the provision of training, technical support, knowledge transfer and through the active promotion of best practices and collective learning.
