We need your support to help us work towards global poverty reduction. We are truly grateful for support of all levels and types, and there are a great many ways to get involved.

“ARM was very impressed by the variety of events the Humanitarian Centre hosted for the ICT4D year, and the high quality of the end report. Sponsoring the programme brought many benefits for ARM, we felt it was good value and would certainly recommend sponsorship to other companies.” – Tudor Brown, Co-founder and President of ARM, sponsor of the Humanitarian Centre’s ICT4D Development Year.
