Since 2008, the Human Initiative has been registered with the United Nations to take part in the international community as an NGO with a "Special Consultative Status with the Economic Social Council".


However, it must be admitted that this mission is somewhat specific to other humanitarian missions that have been handled by the Human Initiative, such as handling the Pakistan floods, the Rohingya crisis, Palestine, the Japanese earthquake, and others.
