CREATING CONNECTIONS TOUR 2017

Generously supported by Humanity United, iACT’s 2017 Creating Connections Tour From Los Angeles to New York is an opportunity to learn more and become part of iACT’s unique model for humanitarian action. LEARN MORE

iACT is a Los Angeles-based international organization providing humanitarian action to aid, empower, and extend hope to those affected by mass atrocities, creating a world where people are connected and equipped to act.

iACT refuses to accept the status quo of humanitarian aid and services for displaced communities. We place the community at the center and look outside the box to create an alternative solution that uses environmental limitations as assets rather than obstacles. Through an interactive process with refugee beneficiaries, our programs are shaped and molded to be the most effective for each community we work with.

Through responsive action campaigns and leadership development in the U.S., iACT provides tools and training necessary to create a new culture of participation for people facing and responding to humanitarian crises. iACT utilizes innovative thinking, human-centered design, and collaborative relationships to co-create replicable and cost-effective programs in refugee camps.

Since 2005, iACT has facilitated refugee-led education, sports, and human rights programs that build resilience and cultivate recovery in refugee camps with a focus of filling a gap in humanitarian response and in improving the way we create and implement programs with refugee populations.
