Divine Act Charitable Trust (DACT) is a registered grassroots development Organization initiated by a group of development professionals, academicians and social workers drawn from various social development field working to create lasting change in the lives of poor and building transformed communities.

The Foundation has created, managed and supported programs aimed to bring about sustainable changes and dedicated to imparting knowledge, predominantly in the field of education and employment skills, water sanitation and hygiene, and employment generation, preventing AIDS and other health hazards, for the underprivileged. DACT aims to bring in the passion for change, the determination to produce visible results, and the commitment to ensure that every single person who has everything to do with a community has the opportunity to make it a better one. The sustainable livelihoods approach offers a way of analyzing rural poverty that respects and empowers the local population as architects of their own development. Using this holistic process, DACT involves entire communities in designing and implementing projects, and helps them to collaborate with local, foreign organizations and government agencies.

DACT’s focus on livelihoods is applied in innovative ways to make the world a better place – by providing a community and resources for local children and youth from low-income backgrounds to learn, teach, be creative, and see the world in new ways. The Trust works in Sub-Sahara Africa countries. They have saved the lives of the less vulnerable children’s and adolescents including the Persons with Disability (PWD); have fought for their rights and help them fulfill their potential, so to enable them maximize their potentials towards nation building and to see that the less populace children and adolescents grow into responsible citizens of their communities and the world at large.

DACT works to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and adolescents to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. Across all the work done, DACT pursues several core values: passion, integrity, excellence and team work.
