Host International

About Host International

Our vision is for an inclusive world where people on the move and host communities work together to create better lives for all. We believe that this is best achieved by fostering a common sense of humanity, dignity and a shared hope in a better future​.

Our mission is to make life better for displaced people and host communities by fostering humanity, hope and dignity. We do this by facilitating individual wellbeing, community inclusion and global systems change with a focus on innovation in refugee and migrant protection.

Rather than applying traditional models of humanitarian rescue and material aid, we enable displaced people and the communities they live in to develop and implement their own solutions to the challenges they face. In addition, we amplify the voices of displaced communities through research and advocacy that influences policies and practices globally.

HOST is a charity with ACFID and ISO 9001 accreditation and local governance structures in each country that we operate. Our directors are listed below.
