Posted by: on Jun 22, 2018 | No Comments

As part of HI’s new brand identity, the Handicap International Foundation changed its name to become the HI Institute on Humanitarian Action.

On the occasion of its 35th anniversary, the global organization that is Handicap International changed its name to become Humanity & Inclusion. This new name expresses the values on which our NGO is founded, values such as humanity or benevolence. Besides, for the very first time, it is associated with a pictogram, that of a hand. For us, it represents support, protection and care, as well as communication and dialogue. On the other hand, this pictogram is also saying “Stop!” : stop exclusion, stop injustice, and stop human rights violations. As always, we want our voice be heard loud and clear!

As a fully-fledged member of this organization, the Handicap International Foundation is now also changing its name to become the HI Institute on Humanitarian Action (or Institut HI pour l’Action Humanitaire in French).

Adopted during our last Board meeting, on 15 June 2018, this new name also expresses our values and mission: reflect on humanitarian action, in both emergency and development contexts, and guarantee the values and principles of HI while keeping a watchful eye on the operationalization of our organization’s ethical guidelines.
