HUMANITAS, society for human rights and supportive action, is a voluntary, non-governmental and non-profit organisation. Its principal aims are to offer assistance to less privileged groups at home and around the world, to represent and assert their interests, and to promote tolerance. Their mission is to raise awareness of global problems such as poverty, over-consumption, the gap between economically differently developed countries and, through education and awareness raising, to encourage social inclusion and responsibility. Projects carried out in cooperation with African partners are small and indirect. Global education activities are heterogeneous – implementing workshops for school children and students, teacher’s seminars and different public events. They also run specialized library (operating inside Ljubljana’s municipality library) offering books from different areas such as human rights, interculturalism, globalization, development studies, conflict and peace studies, environment, food and water and active citizenship. They develop pedagogical materials and exhibitions covering areas they work on. Humanitas is financed by projects funded by the EU and Slovene official bodies, by donations and membership fees.
