Our Approach

Humentum is part of a growing movement that seeks to shift to an equity-centered model of development for fair, meaningful, and lasting change.

Through our advocacy and government affairs work we:

  • Build long-term relationships with key bilateral, multilateral, and private funders and strategic partners;
  • Partner with those individuals and organizations to advance reforms on the “how” of NGO development funding
  • Mobilize the power of the global Humentum network (including INGO member organizations, public and private foundation donors, national NGO member organizations, and other stakeholders)

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.

Our Theory of Change focuses on four components equitable, resilient, and accountable operating models. Our entire organization is working within this framework, with Advocacy leading the way.


Here is some of the work we’re focused on within those foundational areas
