What makes HQAI special is its relevance and stride towards actionable goals. Better aid has been the buzz word for a while now, but HQAI´s services ensures it through unique practical solutions. I have always wanted to work for the vulnerable people but often got caught up in ideals as opposed to actions. At HQAI, I believe my work can truly help the people in concrete and pragmatic manner. Furthermore, the people at HQAI are its true heart and soul, a very passionate and warm team which makes coming to office a treat, rather than a burden.
