About Us

Your global partner for social good.

Who are we?

We are the leading global nonprofit working with humanitarian and development organizations to improve how they operate and to make the community more equitable, accountable, and resilient. We have staff based across the United States, United Kingdom, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and India. We also work with over 100 expert associates and trainers based in a range of countries around the world to deliver our consultancy projects and trainings for members and clients.

Humentum was formed by the merger of InsideNGO, LINGOs, and Mango in July 2017. We knew we could accomplish more as one global organization working together than each organization could accomplish alone.

OUR MISSION: We partner with the global development community to be an equitable, accountable, and resilient force for social good.

What We Do

Build Community. Sharing, collaborating, and connecting are the pillars of our organization. Our strength is in our members and our clients, and we bring them together regularly for peer-to-peer exchanges. We convene more than 50 events annually for senior leaders, such as our quarterly CEO, CFO, and COO Forums. Our topical roundtables, free to members throughout the year, are popular events where functional experts discuss problems, solutions, and best practices.

Promote Learning. We advance individual and organizational capability through online training and content. Thousands of professionals take advantage every year of our 300+ workshops, e-Learning offerings, and webinars to build their capacity in the areas of compliance; finance, grants, and contracts; human resources and internal learning; and program/project management.

Provide Solutions: We help solve organization-wide problems through our consultancy service. Our tailored expert and practical consultancy services strengthen operations and organizational performance at humanitarian and development organizations, delivered by over 100 affiliated expert associates and trainers based around the globe.

Engage in Advocacy: We create and advocate for data-driven policies and standards that address sector-wide challenges. We advocate on behalf of our members, representing their views and priorities to key funders—especially the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); the Department of State; and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) of the United Kingdom.
