Our Mission

At the Humanitarian Forum we have a vision. A vision of a world in which there is trust between communities and the potential of aid is maximised. And so our mission is to improve the lives of those in need and relations between communities, through trust building and quality humanitarian action, both internationally and locally in a global network of peers. We want to promote hope in humanity, by creating a conducive, unbiased and safe environment for the implementation of technically sound and principled humanitarian action. Our purpose is to provide a platform for dialogue, to promote mutual understanding, to support capacity building and development of humanitarian and development organisations, and to advocate for a legal framework for greater transparency and accountability.

Our Work

Our work centres on empowering civil society groups at all levels to reach their full potential. We create dialogue and understanding between Muslim organisations and their Western counterparts.

At an organisational level, we run workshops and create partnerships with small organisations to increase capacity, accountability and expertise.

At national level our national Forums give local organisations a strong collective voice. This is particularly crucial where state capacity to respond to disasters is limited, or different humanitarian communities lack coordination.

Internationally, we develop strong networks of humanitarian communities, especially to deal with emergencies. We convene international and regional conferences where humanitarian and development organisations from different backgrounds meet as equals.

Our Approach

At all levels our work addresses five key areas of humanitarian work: capacity building and training; accountability; building bridges; coordination and cooperation; humanitarian standards.

In a complex world, the combination of these areas is vital for humanitarian organisations to maximise efficiency, and ensure the people they help receive the greatest benefit.

These key areas work to improve the lives of those in need, and relations between communities, though bridge building and quality humanitarian action. As well as building skills, they also mean that the civil society sector can become trustworthy and credible at national level. It can be held accountable by governments and people, and becomes a unified and sustainable sector, with more influence to make positive changes.

These five areas link together to create a solid foundation for any humanitarian sector to build upon.
