Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.

Handicap International is changing his name and becomes Humanity & Inclusion . HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster.

We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes in more than 55 countries and responded to many emergencies.

Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.

Humanity & Inclusion’s Operation’s Division is composed of 5 Geographical divisions, 4 Technical divisions, an Emergency Division and an Information, Impact & Innovation Division.


One of the 4 Technical Divisions is the Social & Inclusion Division composed of 20 persons. At the moment, within the inclusive education (IE) sector, there are 2 specialists across 30 countries, but with another few potential countries who also want to develop IE programs, potentially with a focus on education in emergencies.

HI is looking an inclusive education development officer that would bring new skills and expertise to this expanding area.

Also, 2019 will be a crucial year for inclusive education, on an international level. Now that disability mainstreaming is becoming more popular amongst general education partners, the development officer will help building new consortiums.

We need to capitalise on the commitments made at the Global disability Summit for new partnerships and make the most of new donor initiatives.
