HQAI is extremely proud of its diverse network of audited organisations, strategic partners and donors. We are driven by our mission and consider them as partners with whom we want to reach a common goal: make aid better.

Our partners have strengthened HQAI’s position in different ways over the past years and give us momentum to continue serving the sector. We want to express our gratitude for their continuous support.


At Takaful Alsham we are seeing more complaints across all our projects, to which we respond well, and so encourage more to come forward. Before CHS certification, around 65-75% of programme participants knew how to complain; since the implementation of changes, this has increased to 90%. Mohammed EZALDEEN, Quality Manager at Takaful Alsham, September 2022


We are deeply thankful for the work of HQAI and CHS Alliance in streamlining this whole due diligence process and for having a certification in place which we can adopt and rely on. The CHS represents a Gold Standard for us. Joe HEIN, Directorate for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs, Luxembourg, 2021

Funding partners

HQAI was established as an association which requires donor funds to support its development. None of HQAI’s successes so far would have been possible without the precious core financial support provided by: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs Luxembourg, the Swiss Confederation and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

In addition to their direct financial contribution, HQAI’s major donors value HQAI’s initiative and facilitate its activities. Significant actors in the sector recognise - to various degrees - HQAI’s audit reports for their own due diligence processes, thus recognising that HQAI’s reports meet their current membership or partnership requirements. They provide invaluable support in explaining and promoting HQAI’s services.

Strategic partners

Our strategic partners are organisations in the humanitarian and development sector with whom we collaborate on reaching our common goals.
