What We Do
An empowered youth is an embodiment of endless possibilities. We discover their talent early enough, nurture these talents, teach life skills, inspire self-belief, and create economic opportunities thereby empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and unlock their full potentials.
Today, more people than ever are in need of humanitarian assistance due to conflict and disaster. For nearly five decades, ACTDF has supported communities in crisis. Whether human-made, a natural disaster, or a disease outbreak, ACTDF rapidly meets basic needs, inspires resilience, and fosters self-sufficiency for those affected by crisis.
Every child deserves access to qualitative education but the effects of poverty on children can be profound and long-lasting, and the poorest and most vulnerable children are the least likely to access qualitative education. Ensuring quality education is made available to children in remote, impoverished communities is at the heart of ACTDF’s work, enabling these children to grow into active, engaged, and resilient adults capable of navigating shocks and overcoming adversity.
