Join Us

Join our e-mail list!  We’ll send email reminders for our meetings, trips, and events and also forward information about other opportunities in international development.

Come to our weekly meetings! HFID has weekly meetings on Sunday 2-3:00 in Lamont Forum Room (3rd floor of Lamont Library).  Meetings consist of a content piece, in which we will discuss a question or case study in international development, and meetings for committees.  We always welcome new members, so feel free to stop by a meeting to learn more about HFID!

Also, even if you are outside the Harvard community, if you are interested in working with us on our mission, please contact us! We would love to talk to you! Our trips do not just consist of the Harvard community, so we would love for you to come with us, and we are interested in your thoughts and ideas.  If you would like e-mail updates regarding our events and reports of our trips, please send us a message (, and let us know.

Support Us

Why sponsor?
Your sponsorship will contribute to sustaining the function of not only our on-campus operations, but also our international programs, which in turn effect sustainable models of living in underprivileged parts of the world. Financial assistance from supporters like you make it possible for HFID to further its mission. By sponsoring us, you will:
1) Support a student-run initiative that acts on international development issues;
2) Give students the opportunity to take trips that help poor communities;
3) Gain recognition as an official HFID sponsor on our website, brochures, posters

HFID offers three levels of sponsorship: Good Samaritan (>$5000), Friend ($1000-5000), and Partner ($100-1000). These sponsorships will go directly into funding HFID’s on-campus programs and international programs (e.g. Lead Us Today, Kasiisi Project). Your contribution will be acknowledged with a thank you note from our organization and a report on where your money went. Every little bit helps. Thank you!

Note: HFID has tax-deductible status; Tax ID number will be provided by fundraising representative, Esther Lim (
