iACT believes in human dignity, and we work to build programs #WithRefugees that help them reclaim the dignity lost as they fled targeted violence in their home countries and settled in refugee camps. Since 2005, we’ve worked with refugees from Sudan who fled violence in Darfur and settled in refugee camps in eastern Chad.

We have walked with them through the hot sand as they gave us a tour of what one refugee described as an “open prison” with few chances for true opportunity to thrive and recover. We have held babies who were born in clinics with nothing more than a mosquito net and a cot. We have played soccer with the youth, who laughed when I, a girl, scored a goal on their fellow peers. We have seen hope in the form of sport and education. We have laughed, hugged, cried, and experienced true joy and friendship with our friends from Sudan.
