ACTED (Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development) is a non-governmental organization founded in 1993 with headquarters in Paris, France. Independent, private and not-for-profit, ACTED respects a strict political and religious impartiality and operates according to principles of non-discrimination and transparency in 33 countries around the world.
Our Mission: Adaptability, Efficiency and Flexibility for Results
ACTED responds to emergencies, provides recovery and rehabilitation support and contributes to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) through interventions that seek to cover multiple aspects of humanitarian and development crises through a multidisciplinary approach. For 20 years, our intervention areas have been among the poorest, most vulnerable and remote in the world and we adapt out strategies to each context in order to achieve the most direct positive impact with the most efficient use of resources. ACTED is committed to accountability and quality management, certified as an active member of HAP International.
Our Approach: To guarantee the link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development
ACTED's vision is to guarantee the link between emergency, rehabilitation and development based on the contiguum model. ACTED often establishes a presence in response to a disaster or crisis where ACTED meets basic needs through emergency response but goes beyond them by remaining in the field after emergencies to develop needs-based programming to meet the recovery and development goals of communities we work with. As a principle, ACTED starts pursuing rehabilitation and (return-to) development measures immediately after the start of and alongside its relief activities.
