ACT Alliance is a coalition of 145 churches and church-related organisations working together in over 100 countries to create positive and sustainable change in the lives of poor and marginalised people regardless of their religion, politics, gender, sexual orientation, race or nationality in keeping with the highest international codes and standards.
ACT Alliance is supported by 25,000 staff from member organisations and mobilises about $1.5 billion for its work each year in three targeted areas:
ACT Alliance is deeply rooted in the communities it serves. It has earned the trust and respect of local people long before large international interventions scale up, and remains steadfast in its grassroots commitments for many years after world attention has shifted elsewhere.
This means that every day, ACT Alliance is on the frontlines:
addressing systemic poverty
supporting survivors of disasters, wars and conflicts
training rural communities in sustainable agricultural techniques
helping people adapt to environmental change,
and influencing governments and other key decision makers to safeguard citizens’ human rights.
