Partner. Resource. Amplify.

Join iACT in our mission to resource and partner with people affected by war and conflict, to amplify their voices and create opportunities for them to thrive.


The current humanitarian system was not built to respond to ongoing displacement.

Its traditional top-down approach no longer suffices in a world that demands solutions that are sustainable, dignified, and led by those directly affected.

1 in 6 people worldwide were exposed to conflict in 2023. (ACLED)

67% of refugees are living in protracted crises and have been displaced for more than five years. (DRC)

In 2022, less than 1% of international humanitarian funding went to refugee-led organizations. (HPG Report)


For 15 years, iACT has seen the answer in the people themselves.

iACT programs are grounded in a community-led approach, shifting power and ownership to those most impacted.

We do this by listening deeply to their needs, then together, we create safe and joyful programs that include preschools, soccer academies, employment opportunities, and training, all led by the affected communities themselves.

iACT’s Little Ripples (LR) preschool program for children ages 3 to 5 is rooted in the belief that educational programs that are evidence-based, trauma-informed, and play-based can be accessible and adaptable to any context, and can be led by the community itself.

“I feel a big responsibility towards iACT’s future in order to make [iACT founder Gabriel’s] vision continue. And not only me, there are thousands of people iACT saved their lives and helped them. They created a football team and built preschools, sports academies and the positive thing is they appointed only the refugees as employees in all these programs and livelihood projects, too so that they are refugee-led.”
