InterAction and Humentum Announce New Partnership for Member Organization Benefits

Humentum and InterAction are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Vendor Centric to develop a new, cutting-edge member benefit – a Members Only Co-op.  As untied resources continue to shrink forcing organizations to make critical budget decisions, this co-op will unlock the possibilities for members to have access to products and services at reduced rates. In addition, the co-op will help organizations reach greater efficiency and take much of the guess work out of vendor vetting.

InterAction Welcomes Five New Members

In late December, InterAction welcomed five new members into our coalition. These members represent a wide range of work within the international development and humanitarian sectors, bringing knowledge and expertise on issues ranging from human rights to data, civilian protection to poverty alleviation.  These organizations embody the shared principles amongst the membership and are welcomed additions to the InterAction community.

A huge welcome to the following new members:

Welcome New InterAction Members

Not only did we kickoff InterAction’s Forum with three former heads of state, InterAction had the privilege of welcoming eight new organizations into our membership. These newest members truly represent the breadth and depth of both InterAction’s work and the work of our collective NGO community, from providing medical supplies to humanitarian projects worldwide to supporting clean water projects in Ethiopia to advocating for the democratization of international development finance.

It is my pleasure to introduce InterAction’s eight new members:

Welcome New InterAction Members

Welcoming new members to the growing InterAction community is the most rewarding aspect to the four staff representing the Membership & Standards team. We are now more than 180 members strong, representing development and humanitarian work across the globe, working on many of today’s most pressing issues. Our newest members add important fresh perspectives to our work - from protecting wild areas and the animals who call it home to supporting women in war-torn countries.
