iACT

iACT is a Los Angeles-based international organization providing humanitarian action to aid, empower, and extend hope to those affected by mass atrocities, creating a world where people are connected and equipped to act. All of iACT’s work is grounded in community collaboration, trauma-informed approaches, restorative practices, and peacebuilding skill-development.

iACT utilizes innovative thinking, human-centered design, and collaborative relationships to co-create adaptable, sustainable, and cost-effective programs in refugee camps and for displaced community members. iACT challenges the traditional humanitarian top-down model by co-creating and delivering solutions together with beneficiaries in order to address the comprehensive needs of a community, build resilience, and restore dignity. Since 2009, iACT has helped refugees uncover their own empowerment and community members to lead safe, fun, and inclusive education, sports, and leadership programs that ensure displaced children and youth are able to exercise their rights to education and healthy development, in addition to providing employment, leadership, and professional development opportunities for parents and caregivers.
