Long Business Description:

ACTED is an association of French international solidarity which aims to support vulnerable populations around the world.

Since 1993, the international solidarity association ACTED has been responding to the humanitarian needs of populations in crisis situations and to respect for their dignity, while promoting and implementing opportunities for sustainable development by investing in the potential of the region. 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. Our teams help people affected by crises through a global and local approach, multidisciplinary and adapted to each context. By providing the link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development, ACTED’s teams guarantee the usefulness and sustainability of the interventions carried out in times of crisis, because only long-term support – staying on site after the emergency and in involving communities – helps break the cycle of poverty and support people on the road to sustainable development. ACTED is now present on 4 continents and our teams of 4,700 people are involved in 37 countries around the world to deal with emergencies, to support rehabilitation projects and support development dynamics. 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.
