ACTED

Created in 1993, ACTED is an international non-governmental organization pursuing a dual mandate of emergency response and development interventions in 40 of some of the world’s most vulnerable countries affected by conflicts, disasters or socio-economic hardship. With a team of 7,000 national staff and 400 international staff, ACTED implements 500 projects a year to support more than 20 million beneficiaries, notably in hard-to-reach areas.

ACTED goes to the last mile through programs and approaches that look beyond the immediate emergency towards opportunities for longer term livelihood reconstruction and sustainable development. Guided by the motto “Think Local, Act Global” and its 3Zero –Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, and Zero Poverty – strategy, ACTED puts local territories at the centre and provides a tailored support to local needs.

ACTED Burkina Faso

ACTED has been present in Burkina Faso since early 2019, providing humanitarian assistance in the North and Sahel (Soum) regions. We aim to provide multisectoral emergency response to displaced families and vulnerable host communities through WASH and livelihood distributions (non-food items and cash transfers), in close coordination with the humanitarian community. These activities are part of a broader stabilisation programme, in line with ACTED’s commitment to the Humanitarian Nexus, while replicating our regional approach implemented also in Mali and Niger.
