ACTED from France

Since 1993, as an international non-governmental organisation, ACTED has been committed to immediate humanitarian relief to support those in urgent need and protect people’s dignity, while co-creating longer term opportunities for sustainable growth and fulfilling people’s potential.

Independent, private and non-profit, French NGO ACTED respects a strict political and religious impartiality, and operates following principles of non-discrimination and transparency, according to its core values: responsibility, impact, enterprising-spirit and inspiration.

ACTED endeavours to respond to humanitarian crises and build resilience; promote inclusive and sustainable growth; co-construct effective governance and support the building of civil society worldwide by investing in people and their potential.

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 4,800 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 guarantee that interventions made in a crisis situation 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 35 countries towards 8 million people, responding to emergency situations, supporting rehabilitation projects and accompanying the dynamics of development. Over 5,000 staff are dedicated to implementing and developing our projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo (Kinshasa), Haiti, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Myanmar, Nepal, Niger, occupied Palestinian Territories, Pakistan, the Philippines, Republic of the Congo (Brazzaville), Senegal, Somalia, Sri Lanka, South Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Yemen.

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 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), advocating for an integrated approach, co-construction and global partnership.

In association with French, European and international partners, ACTED is committed to promoting and developing innovative approaches and initiatives, humanitarian principles, new forms of solidarity and convergences between private and public actors and NGOs from the North and the South covering themes such as aid efficiency and transparency, evaluation, information and coordination of humanitarian emergencies, promotion of local governance and civil society strengthening, sustainable access to income and microfinance, prevention and reduction of disasters, climate-change prevention and adaptation, the link between development aid, sustainable development and social business, food security, etc.
