Roadmap

The next six months

The Association for the Convergence of Trust (or ACT) is a start-up Swiss registered not-for-profit membership association created in late 2020.

Founders are former United Nations and professional services’ leaders who believe that a change in the attitude towards international development with a focus on converging trust will contribute to help humanity progress. They are devoting their efforts and experience to contribute to international development.

ACT is federating a growing community of local NGOs worldwide that are actively supporting in refining the strategic programmes and is also in the process of creating a community of global and local donors. The plan is to go-live by the end of 2021.
