Our Mission Providing Adapted Responses
ACTEDís vocation is to support vulnerable populations worldwide and to accompany them in building a better future.
The programs implemented by ACTED (around 150 per year), in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, aim at addressing the needs of populations affected by wars, natural disasters and/or economic and social crises.
Our interventions seek to cover the multiple aspects of humanitarian and development crises through a multidisciplinary approach which is both global and local, and adapted to each context.
Our Vision Guaranteeing the Link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development
Once basic needs have been covered, the populationís living conditions remain critical as our areas of intervention are among the poorest in the world.
For this reason, ACTEDís axis of intervention lies in the link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development. In other words, in order to guarantee the sustainability of interventions carried out during crises, only long-term support, through a continued presence in the field after the emergency as well as the involvement of communities, enables us to break the poverty cycle and accompany populations on their way to development.
