Who we are
Our mission is to raise funds for the development projects in Africa and India, but at the same time to have a positive impact in Europe, as well.
We are fourteen Humana organizations and social enterprises from Europe connected with the International Federation Humana People to People. In 2016, members of the Federation worked in 45 countries on five continents reaching more than 15.5 million people across 1153 development projects worldwide. Therefore, the purpose of Humana Europe is to raise funds through clothes collection and second-hand clothes shops in various European counties: Portugal, Spain, UK, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Romania and Bulgaria. Beside supporting development projects in Africa and India, Humana Europe have a positive impact in different European countries, as well, through projects and activities like 'Cultivating Climate and Community' project in Spain or the environmental impact through the reuse of the used textiles.

scholarships were offered to the students from the schools in Albano who finished the semester with the best grade. Humana Italy will continue to invest in education, because it is the right path toward becoming well informed citizens.
CLOTHES DONATIONS There are good reasons for why donating clothing to others in great needs. When you give people access to clothes, you give them more than a protection from the cold. You give them an ability to socialize and feel dignified. Humana Bulgaria has donated clothes to many different institutions in Bulgaria.
