job Description

Hivos is an international development and human rights organization guided by humanist and feminist values. Since 1968 we work together with citizens and their organizations, contributing towards the creation of just, inclusive and life sustaining societies where people have equal access to opportunities, rights and resources. Our mission is to amplify and connect voices that promote social and environmental justice and challenge power imbalances.

Our approach is solution driven. We support the development of alternative solutions to deep-seated problems so that individuals and communities can make responsible and equitable choices within political and economic systems that serve their needs and preserve the planet. We connect people and organizations, support and build social movements and offer alternatives to those looking for solutions in their fight for social and environmental justice.

To this end we work in partnership with others in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
