Humanity in Action Germany e. V. was founded in 2001 as the fourth partner organization within the Humanity in Action network.

Humanity in Action Germany held its first HIA Fellowship program in the summer of 2002 for university students from Germany and the United States.  Humanity in Action Germany has led initiatives to include students from Central and Eastern European countries in the Humanity in Action Fellowship and to develop the Pat Cox-HIA Fellowship in the European Parliament.

In close cooperation with the German Foundation "Remembrance, Responsibility and Future" (EVZ), Humanity in Action Germany also helped expand the Humanity in Action Fellowship to Warsaw in 2006. After a start-up phase of three years, Humanity in Action Poland was officially founded as an independent organization in 2009.
