iACT Releases 2022-2023 Annual Report

Dear iACT Community,

We are incredibly proud to share our 2022-2023 Annual Report with you and we look forward to the many conversations this document will spark.

These past two years we have navigated extraordinary hardships: tragically losing our founders and leaders, Gabriel Stauring and Katie-Jay Scott, and bearing witness to horrific war, conflict, and displacement across the globe. In the midst of trauma and pain, our staff of four in the US leaned into hope and joy, and our partners and supporters — like you — rallied around iACT and our commitment to refugee-led programs.

Your radical hope and generosity allowed us to continue to resource and partner with refugees, to amplify their voices and create opportunities for them to thrive. Our teams of coaches and teachers — all from communities experiencing active conflict — continued to be amazing leaders and beacons of light for the children and families they serve. 

Together, we centered play, established a new strategic direction, launched soccer and preschool programs, hired more team members, wrote a new mission statement, and were able to support even more families at the Mexico border, across Armenia and the Central African Republic, and refugee camps in Chad. 

In this report you’ll see what we have accomplished together. This work is only possible because of the contributions of each and every member of our community: from our donors, to our coaches, to our volunteers, to our preschool teachers. Because of each of you — our iACT community — more children and families have the opportunity to thrive. 

In the year ahead, we invite you to continue to join us in ensuring more children are supported through early childhood education and sports, and to walk alongside us as we strive to create an alternative model of humanitarian action that centers the knowledge, lived experiences, aspirations, and leadership of the people most affected by war and conflict. 

With Hope in Action, 



Help iACT continue to do what it does best:

Support refugees in the forgotten corners of the world through soccer and preschool.
