About Humanitarian Leadership Academy (HLA)

The Humanitarian Leadership Academy is a global learning initiative set up to build people’s skills and capabilities through learning. The HLA facilitates partnerships and collaborative opportunities to enable people to prepare for and respond to crises in their own countries. As a sector-facing team within Save the Children, the HLA benefits from the knowledge and experience brought by 100 years of responding to crises while still retaining independence.
This allows us to complement Save the Children’s work, supporting more humanitarians, working with anyone with an interest in creating positive change and exploring new innovations in learning.

Kaya is the HLA’s online learning platform, designed specifically for humanitarian and development professionals and volunteers to access relevant, up-to-date learning content covering a broad range of general and technical subjects. Kaya is accessed by over 700,000 registered users from over 190 countries and offers over 500 courses in up to 12 languages. The Kaya interface itself is available in Arabic, French, English and Spanish.

HPass is a digital platform for humanitarians to showcase their skills and expertise. Badges awarded can be shared online or printed as with normal paper certificates. The initiative promotes transparent and efficient recruitment, by enabling humanitarians to quickly provide verifiable evidence of their skills as they transition between organisations and locations.
