The Collective Journey to Equitable Development

Humentum is part of a growing movement that seeks to shift to an equity-centered model of development for fair, meaningful, and lasting change. We believe equitable and locally-led development will only happen when organizations are able to exercise autonomy over their institutional architecture, people, funding, and risk.

Humentum’s role

equityAt Humentum, we build and support equitable, resilient, and accountable (ERA) operating models to create a bridge between strategy and action for better outcomes.

Using our theory of change as a guide, Humentum focuses on the four key components of operating models.

Equity, resilience, and accountability is what organizations should seek to achieve, and how they will get there. It is a lens through which to view the journey.

Humentum builds and supports ERA operating models through advocacy, community, training, and consultancy.

Transforming the funding ecosystem requires action from: funders, CSOs, and INGOs. Humentum’s “12 Levers of Change” provide actionable steps to bring us closer to effective locally led development.
