What we do
The Humanitarian Centre is a unique network that tackles some of the most complex aspects of global poverty. It does this by creating cross-fertilisations between Cambridge’s world-class minds, harnessing the expertise of our community. It brings together otherwise disparate specialists in technology and business with development practitioners in the field and students – to come up with effective solutions. No other organisation does this.
The Centre also supports 40 member organisations, through training in marketing, volunteer management and monitoring and evaluation. The power of the Humanitarian Centre is in its energy and ability to inspire, empower and equip Cambridge’s international development community. Find out more!
