Help our local partners realise their vision of hope for their communities
We go where others won’t
HART supports people who are trapped behind closed borders, oppressed by their own government, ignored by the international media or beyond reach of major aid organisations.
Local people in the driving seat
At the core of HART’s ethos is a commitment to working in partnership with local people. They are committed to their communities for the long-term. They have the biggest stake in promoting peace and development.
Support during times of crisis
HART’s local partners are perfectly placed to reach isolated communities. They understand the needs of people at the grassroots. They have the skills and knowledge to deliver sustainable change.
See the world through a different lens
In a noisy world, we do our best to amplify voices that would otherwise be unheard. We gather first-hand evidence of oppression and injustice. We share real-life stories of grief and courage.
HART is not just ‘another aid organisation’. Our local partners are frequently relied upon to manage a crisis on their own, especially when international organisations have to pull out as a result of insecurity, or if a government restricts humanitarian access.
HART has made us feel like we are not alone.
Jill Hillary, local partner in Timor-Leste
HART dared to reach us during the 20 years of war between the LRA rebels and Ugandan Government.
Raymond Okot, local partner in northern Uganda
You are the first people to visit us... We fled without anything. When we came here, there was nobody to help us.

Apart from HART, these villages have not received any help from the Government or from any other organisation.
Hassan John, local partner in central Nigeria
Even the UN could not reach these vulnerable people because of the flooding… Thank you to HART for your efforts to save even one life.
