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.
