Man. Independent, private and non-profit, the NGO ACTED (statute association law 1901) works in the respect of a strict political and religious impartiality, according to the principles of non-discrimination and transparency, and the values of responsibility, impact, entrepreneurship, and inspiration. ACTED works to respond to emergencies and build resilience of people to crisis situations, promote inclusive and sustainable growth, and strengthen civil society, good governance and social cohesion. ACTED aims to support vulnerable populations around the world and to support them in building a better future by providing a response tailored to specific needs.

With its experience in close proximity to the situations and needs of vulnerable communities around the world, ACTED contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, advocating for an integrated approach, co-construction, and a global partnership. Associated with numerous French, European and international partners, ACTED is committed to promoting and developing innovative approaches and initiatives, humanitarian principles, new solidarities and convergences between private operators.

Long Business Description:

Fighting poverty through entrepreneurship

At Agrisud, we do not accept the idea that today almost one billion and a half of individuals are living in poverty and are often experiencing great difficulties to feed themselves daily.

It is well known in the South as in the North that poverty is caused especially by economic exclusion, which gradually leads to social exclusion. We are now convinced that one way of resolving this situation is to help those people back into the economy. How? By helping them become entrepreneurs
