Comprised of a vast assortment of more than 160 U.S.-based relief, development, environmental and refugee agencies active in over 100 nations, InterAction, founded in 1984, leads the United States as one of the most effective advocates for individual and country autonomy. In attempt to assist people and developing nations in obtaining this objective, InterAction agencies “promote economic development and self-reliance, improve health and education, provide relief to victims of disasters and war, assist refugees, advance human rights, protect the environment, address population concerns, advocate for more just public policies and increase understanding and cooperation between people."
