The Central African Republic (CAR) has been caught in decades-long cycles of violence and displacement affecting every child, woman, and man.
In Fall of 2021, iACT is returning to CAR to launch Little Ripples (LR) preschools and Refugees United Soccer Academies–bringing play and joy to children and sustainable, long-term support for their families and communities. Our hope for CAR is that every child has a safe space to experience joy, peace, helping, and sharing. We need your help.
This Fall, iACT plans to train 60 teachers and hire four coaches to launch the Refugees United Soccer Academy in CAR. This will bring play to 1,000 children.

NEWS AND UPDATES
By the afternoon, the consensus was encapsulated by what one humanitarian worker in Bangui told us, “This is CAR. It is always high risk.”
We are excited to announce that iACT has secured initial funding for our team to return to the Central African Republic (CAR) this fall, for the first time since 2017.
As 2019 comes to an end, all of us at iACT have a simple theme we’ve been focusing on for 2020: impact. For us, “impact” is so much more than numbers. It’s about dignity, respect, and true opportunity for each individual that is touched by iACT’s work.
