About us

Humana People to People Baltic (Humana Baltic) was founded in 1998. The idea was to establish an organisation in Lithuania that could raise funds to support international development through a network of shops selling second hand clothes and using the surplus from this activity for development projects.

In 2018, Humana Baltic, sponsored more than 130 international development projects in 17 countries all over the world. Growing from a single shop and sorting centre in Lithuania in 1998, today Humana Baltic is one of the biggest second-hand clothes operations in Lithuania, both sorting and selling clothes. 

We support development projects by raising vital funds through the purchase, sorting and sale of second-hand clothes, whilst also helping to reduce carbon emissions and textile waste contributing to global warming and providing people with quality second-hand clothing.

As the volume of activities is steadily growing, in 2019 Humana Baltic separated its fundraising activity through second hand clothing into an own entity, "Humana LT", UAB so Humana Baltic can focus on the development and monitoring of partnership projects. "Humana LT", UAB is fully owned by Humana Baltic.


Humana People to People

Humana People to People is an international civil society movement rooted in a commitment to tackle some of the world’s major social and environmental challenges. In 1996, 16 national associations in Europe and Africa formed the Federation for Associations connected to the International Humana People to People Movement (FAIHPP), aiming to strengthen cooperation and the impact of their work. By 2019, FAIHPP has 30 independent associations as members across Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America.

Humana Baltic, as a member of FAIHPP, shares a set of common values and engages into human development through contributions to the partnership projects.

The UN Agenda 2030 guides the activities undertaken by FAIHPP and its member organizations. Together with numerous international partners, the international community and global leaders, FAIHPP strives to help meet the Sustainable Development Goals in order to alleviate suffering and create lasting positive change.

Social Partnership in Lithuania

Since 2007, Humana Baltic has been committed to creating a social partnership in Lithuania with a focus on healthy nutrition and cooking skills of children and youth, especially from socially disadvantaged families.

The social partnership objectives are realized through the programme, “Eat wisely”, what is implemented in partnership with local Child and Youth NGOs and Schools. In 2019, the programme will have reached more than four thousand children from all over the country. The “Eat wisely” edition for Schools is implemented in close cooperation with the Education Development Center of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport.

Humana Baltic responds to requests for sponsorship in kind by social institutions and NGOs who care for people in need, e.g. refugees and asylum seekers at the Foreigners’ Registration center, inmates at the Remand Prison or bed-bound people with spinal cord injuries. Humana Baltic in 2018 donated more than 22 tons of second hand clothes and shoes, i.e., dressed up more than 20 thousand people of specific social groups in need.
