Since 1993, NGO ACTED responds to the humanitarian needs of populations in situations of crisis, to achiever their dignity, and promotes opportunities for long term development by investing in human potential.
Independent, private and nonprofit, ACTED respects a strict political and religious impartiality, and operates following principles of non-discrimination, transparency, according to its core values: responsibility, impact, enterprising-spirit and inspiration.
ACTED is committed to responding to emergency and developing resilience to future crises, to promoting inclusive and sustainable growth, and to co-constructing effective governance.
ACTED teams are devoted to supporting vulnerable communities throughout the world and accompanying them in building a better future by providing a response adapted to specific needs. Our staff of over 4,000 people provide aid to populations affected by crisis using an approach that is both local and global, multidisciplinary and adapted to each context. By ensuring the link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development, ACTED teams guaranty that interventions made in a situation of crisis are useful and sustainable, because only long term support – by remaining in the area post emergency and involving communities – can end the poverty cycle and accompany populations on the road to development.
ACTED is present in four continents and our teams intervene in 34 countries throughout the world responding to emergency situations, supporting rehabilitation projects and accompanying the dynamics of development. With its experience working closely with vulnerable communities at the heart of situations that they live in throughout the world, ACTED contributes to reaching the Millennium Development Goals and to the discussions on the Post 2015 agenda and the future objectives of sustainable development, advocating for an integrated approach, co-construction and a global partnership.
