About Us

The Humanitarian Affairs, United Kingdom is a London based Social Enterprise incorporated under the Company Act of 1985 and registered with the Registrar of Companies in England and Wales.

It has an Asia Secretariat based in Thailand and known as Humanitarian Affairs Asia. The Asia Secretariat will administer the annual University Scholars Leadership Symposium and other programmes held in the Asia and Pacific region.

Humanitarian Affairs is a member of the United Nations Global Compact, the World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations, World Alliance for Citizens Participation and the International Association for Volunteer Effort.

Humanitarian Affairs initiates and supports humanitarian relief efforts and development programmes in countries that are poverty-stricken and disaster-prone.

Humanitarian Affairs seeks to identify next generation leaders, and then encourage and nurture them to become world-class citizens with a global mindset and an in-depth understanding of the plight of the Global Poor.

We provide young people with opportunities to engage in humanitarian service, strengthen their awareness of diverse cultures, and develop a lifelong commitment to helping others by participating in relief efforts to benefit impoverished communities in poverty-stricken countries.

Our programmes are not meant to evoke momentary feelings of sympathy and compassion. Rather each activity is designed to be a lesson in teamwork and personal development; each experience serves as a mirror for self-reflection, about life's greater purposes and responsibilities.
