IN MEMORIAM

We are deeply saddened to announce that iACT lost our visionary co-founders in a tragic accident on November 23, 2021. Gabriel Stauring and Katie-Jay Scott were a shining light for so many. They created a global family that worked collectively and mindfully to improve the lives of refugee communities around the world. For those of us who were fortunate enough to know and work with them, we have lost dear friends. The world has lost two amazing human beings.

Gabriel and Katie-Jay’s compassion and spirit will forever be the foundation of iACT. While our hearts are heavy, we are committed to continue to work toward a world where the dignity, humanity, and agency of conflict-affected people are recognized, affirmed, and supported. Please help us ensure that their dream lives on.
