ACTED is a non-governmental organization (NGO) with headquarters in Paris, founded in 1993. Independent, private and not-for-profit, ACTED respects a strict political and religious impartiality and operates according to principles of non-discrimination and transparency. Our vision is to establish a link between emergency, rehabilitation and development, and 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. With over 4,000 national and international staff, and over 340 projects implemented each year across 30 countries, ACTED is now reaching over 6 million beneficiaries per year.
ACTED has been present and registered in Lebanon since 2006, rapidly expanding its operations in 2013 to mitigate the impact of the Syrian refugee crisis on vulnerable populations in Lebanon. ACTED’s team of over 100 national and international staff members are currently providing assistance to over 60,000 people  in Beirut and northern districts of Mount Lebanon (Baabda, Metn, Keserwane and Jbeil), as well as in Akkar District (North).
ACTED’s humanitarian interventions aim to ensure that the basic needs of vulnerable refugee and host community households are met through integrated WASH and shelter assistance, as well as through the provision of conditional and unconditional cash transfers to the most vulnerable. In addition, ACTED supports the efforts of hosting communities and local stakeholders that are affected by the crisis in ensuring continued provision of basic services to an increased population, as well as maintaining social cohesion. Finally, through the REACH initiative, a global partnership with Impact Initiatives and UNOSAT, information management, assessment and mapping services are provided to the humanitarian community.
