Promoting humanitarian values is one of the core work areas that the International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and other member National Societies undertake.

The series of programmes under our Humanitarian Education hopes to advocate change in assessing and interpreting events that may occur in our daily lives. Through the courses, the Academy endeavours to create greater awareness about the complex humanitarian challenges that the world faces today. All these issues call for sustainable solutions and with humanitarian education or values-based education, the Academy strives to inspire people to take humanitarian action through voluntary service, to bring principles and values to life for the common good of humanity.
