About HOST International

Established in December 2016, HOST International is a not for profit charity committed to working wisely, creatively and carefully to help create a better, safer future for displaced people and host communities around the world.

There are rapidly growing numbers of forcibly displaced people in the world and durable solutions such as resettlement and return are not sustainable. Most displaced people are therefore subject to long-term displacement in countries that are unwilling or unable to integrate them. HOST subsequently seeks to promote innovation and integrity in all aspects of our work whilst promoting diversity and cooperation among the people and communities that we work with.

Through strengths based and trauma informed approaches we bring displaced people and host communities together to create protection and inclusion.

Our Governing Principles

Creating and maintaining humanity, hope and dignity is at the core of our work with displaced people and host countries.

Our Values

  • Integrity - Integrity means honesty and transparency in everything we do. It commits us to measure the impact of our work

  • Respect - Respect is embedded in the principles of humanity and dignity. Respect drives our commitment to active engagement with displaced people and host communities.

  • Compassion - Compassion helps us to cut through political and cultural distractions to identify the people most in need of protection and support. It underpins our belief that life can be better for displaced people and host communities.

  • Innovation - Challenge assumptions and suggest different approaches, we embrace change and support others in taking risks and when creating new ideas and solutions

  • Diversity - We believe that diversity creates strength. We take a broad view of skills and experience and encourage the development of a workforce that is representative of the populations we support.
