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 towards 8 million people, responding to emergency situations, supporting rehabilitation projects and accompanying the dynamics of development. Over 4,300 staff are dedicated to implementing and developing our projects in Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Nicaragua, the Republic of the Congo (Brazzaville), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Kinshasa), Iraq, Chad, Haiti, Sudan, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Jordan, Lebanon, the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Central African Republic, Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, Cambodia, Libya, Ivory Coast, Yemen, Niger, Mali, South Sudan, Senegal, Thailand and the Philippines.
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 is engaged in the definition of the sustainable development goals, advocating for an integrated approach, co-construction and global partnership.
