Last week, iACT team members Gabriel Stauring and Sara-Christine Dallain completed iACT’s 24th trip to eastern Chad and the organization’s first visit to refugee sites in Cameroon. It was a momentous trip for iACT and we’re excited to share the highlights, insights, and learnings with you!
Here’s an overview of the trip—but for more details and stories check out the full Trip Report.
