HumaniNet was founded in 2002 by a group of volunteers in the United States who recognized the acute need for technology assistance to humanitarian organizations. Since then, HumaniNet has grown to become a cooperative network of over 100 field organizations, several supporting technology businesses, and a group of expert volunteers who help with research and analysis, finding the best practices, and sharing field results in global information and communication technologies, or ICT.
