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.
