Humanitarian Wayfinders

Guidance from Experience

What are Humanitarian Wayfinders?

Our Lifelines Humanitarian Wayfinders are an annual cohort of two to three organizations invited to host, engage with, help shape and provide mentorship for a range of programs such as the humanitarian simulations, supper clubs, impact embassy, murals, and Humans from Space Data series. Wayfinders will represent a range of organizations with varying missions and objectives of their own that can help guide Lifelines priorities. Wayfinders will also receive financial support for their Lifelines efforts in the form of a stipend. This stipend will come from a pool of $100,000 to be shared across the 2-3 selected wayfinder organizations.
