WHAT A NIGHT!
On May 5th, the iACT community came together at our annual event, One Strong Kick, to celebrate our accomplishments and commit to doing even more toward achieving our mission to provide humanitarian action to aid, empower, and extend hope to those affected by mass atrocities. Together, we raised $90,000 in cash and in-kind support for our refugee-led programs.
One evening can connect communities in action to create a more joyful world.
One evening will expand programs to impact 14,000 MORE refugee boys and girls by providing sports, leadership and hope.
One evening to honor and toast the countless achievements and the success we’ve built.

ONE STRONG KICK BENEFITS OUR THREE REFUGEE PROGRAM AREAS:
Grown from the Darfur United Men’s Team, the soccer Academies for refugee boys and girls ages 6-13 improve on-the-field skills and off-the-field peacebuilding efforts while giving girls equal opportunity, access, and leadership development.
Our international development programs facilitate state-of-the art education models and increase the human rights knowledge and leadership capacity of refugees to be changemakers in their communities.
In the U.S., we mentor individuals across the country to educate and activate their local communities to end ongoing atrocities and prevent futures ones.
