Mission of iACT
iACT is a Los Angeles-based 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.
In the refugee camp Goz Amer for refugees of the Darfur conflict, iACT will develop, implement, and design a new leadership training project for all Little Ripples early childhood educators and female prospective early childhood educators, to increase educators’ agency over school resources and camp management.
Why We Love This Project
We love this project’s focus on forgotten Darfuri refugees, the emphasis on strong early childhood education, the inclusion of refugee women in the programming and the focus on schools in refugee camps.
