Joint vision

Like Diakonia, ACT Alliance strives 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.

Working for change

Members of the ACT Alliance work together for positive and sustainable change in the lives of impoverished, marginalised and vulnerable women, men, girls and boys through coordinated and effective humanitarian, development and advocacy work.

Work with people of all faiths

The members of ACT Alliance work with and for people of all faiths and none. What brings us together is the work for positive and sustainable change in the lives of people affected by poverty and injustice through coordinated and effective humanitarian, development and advocacy work.

Ethical and professional standards

Being a member of ACT Alliance, Diakonia strengthens its work to uphold ethical and professional standards of transparency and accountability to the communities we serve, to those whose resources we are asked to be stewards of, and to each other.

ACT Alliance is a coalition of almost 150 churches and affiliated organisations working together in 140 countries.

ACT Alliance is supported by 25,000 staff and mobilises about $1.5 billion for its work each year in three targeted areas:

Humanitarian aid

Development

Advocacy
