Humanitarian Designers is a free community that aims to be the link between committed designers and NGOs who need design services.

If you are a designer, you can join Humanitarian Designers for free. The only requirement is to provide your portfolio and a link to your LinkedIn profile. It's also free to register for NGOs. Once you get accepted, you will enter a Slack group. Inside, you will meet hundreds of like-minded designers and NGOs who are trying to make a difference in the world.

The Slack group is the perfect place to connect with other designers, bounce off ideas, and exchange knowledge. Besides helping in causes you support, you can get new portfolio pieces and relevant experience by working on projects for Humanitarian Designers.
