Humanist Institute for Cooperation with Developing Countries (Hivos)
A fair, free and sustainable world – that is what Hivos, the Humanist Institute for Development Cooperation, wants to contribute to. Together with local organisations in developing countries, Hivos strives for a world in which all citizens – both men and women – have equal access to resources and opportunities for development. Hivos headquarters are in The Hague.
Hivos first provided support to APC’s Africa Women’s Programme in preparing for Beijing+5, as well as our internet rights work through the
Global ICT Policy Monitor project, with a focus on activities in Latin America and Africa. In 2001, 2002 and 2003, Hivos continued to fund the Africa Women’s Programme and the Global ICT Policy Monitor project.
In 2005 the organisation provided support to GenARDIS and the Global ICT Policy Monitor, and in 2004 to APC-Africa-Women, the Global Gender and ICT Forum and the Global ICT Policy Monitor.
Hivos funded both the Global ICT Policy Monitor project (with core support to CIPP and APC-Africa-Women) and the GenARDIS project in 2006.
In 2008 Hivos is providing support for the following:
- Global Information Society Watch 2008
- Africa ICT Policy Monitor
- Engaging Policy and Practice (CIPP/WNSP – AAW) (1 Jan 2005 to 31 Dec 2008)
