Ending extreme poverty

Human beings are members of a whole
In creation of one essence and soul
If one member is afflicted with pain
Other members uneasy will remain
If you have no sympathy for human pain
The name of human you cannot retain.

Human Act Annual Report 2019/2020

Human Act is an independent foundation (NGO) working with partners both nationally and internationally to create awareness about inequalities in the world and to mobilize people to fight for a fairer distribution of the world’s wealth. Human Act focuses its efforts on a way forward to SDG 10 to reduce inequality within and among countries.

In 2018 Human Act launched Move Humanity – a movement that advocates a global wealth tax on billionaires to help finance the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and make a difference in the lives of the millions of people living in extreme poverty.

A just and sustainable world free from extreme poverty.


To transform the global distribution of wealth towards a more equitable society through awareness, action, and partnerships.


We believe that the ability to show love, empathy, and not least generosity towards our fellow human beings is essential if we are to make the world a better and more joyful place for all to live in.

We also believe that in order for change to be achievable we have to believe that change is possible, and we must have the courage to keep on going, even when we encounter great obstacles.

Finally, we believe that non-violence in all actions, whether it be physical or psychological, is the best way to bring about long-lasting change. Though it may be important to show strength and bravery when facing challenges in life, it is just as important to show humility and the ability to forgive; forgive ourselves and those around us.
