About Hivos

Hivos is an international organisation that seeks new solutions to persistent global issues. With smart projects in the right places, the organisation opposes discrimination, inequality, abuse of power and the unsustainable use of our planet’s resources. Counterbalance alone, however, is not enough. This is why Hivos cooperates with innovative businesses, citizens and their organisations. Hivos has a dream with them of sustainable economies and inclusive societies.

Hivos wants to contribute to a free, fair and sustainable world where citizens, women and men, have equal access to resources, opportunities and markets and can participate actively and equally in decision-making processes that determine their lives, their society and their future.
