Humanity & Inclusion

The collection is managed by Humanity & Inclusion. On January 24th 2018, the global Handicap International network became Humanity & Inclusion. Humanity & Inclusion is an international aid organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. Working alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, Humanity & Inclusion takes action to raise awareness in order to respond to their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Our values


Source is regularly reviewed in close partnership with expert organisations and individuals so that it offers up-to-date, relevant information. It offers a key point of access to free electronic, up-to-date, relevant information relating to disability and inclusion in development and humanitarian contexts. The underlying principle of Source is to promote the full participation people with disabilities in society.


Source's mission is to use available expertise to support the dissemination, repackaging and sharing of information on disability and inclusion in challenging contexts to support practitioners and promote research, innovation, learning and training as well as North-South organisational linkages.
