For the past year, the Foundation dedicated part of its time in ensuring a greater coherence of Handicap International’s archives to foster their in-house use and external exploitation. The objective is to guarantee the preservation of our NGO’s heritage, or more accurately our heritage as HI’s history belongs to those who worked to make this association what it is today, from the Pyramid of Shoes to the adoption of the treaties of Ottawa or Oslo, without forgetting Party without Borders or the creation of HI’s sections, which later became our eight National Associations.

To this extent, part of the Foundation’s team will travel to HI’s offices in Munich, Germany, at the end of September to gather objects and anecdotes likely to capture and return the spirit and history of this National Association. The same approach will of course be adopted for each of the eight National Associations of Handicap International’s federal network. Eventually, those working in the field will also be included in order to draw a more complete picture of Handicap International’s history.
