Humanity in Action is an international educational organization that aspires to increase the engagement of a new generation of social, cultural and political leaders with respect to inclusiveness, human rights and social responsibility.

Since 1999, Humanity in Action The Netherlands has organized the Humanity in Action Fellowship in Amsterdam for students from the Netherlands, the United States, Bosnia and Herzegovina and recently Greece. This program begins with a focus on the Second World War and then makes connections to contemporary issues relating to human rights and diversity in the Netherlands. The focus is on providing participants with the insight that individuals have the power to make a difference, even when confronting the most challenging issues.

Humanity in Action Netherlands also supports an active network of more than 200 Dutch Senior Fellows and organizes international educational programs for Senior Fellows from around the world.
