Wow, we’ve been awarded the (slightly geeky) European Public Affairs Award for best NGO!
The award was based on two of our campaigns:
The Vedanta campaign to stop a British-listed mining company from building a mine on the sacred Niyamgiri hills, home to thousands of tribal people.
ActionAid’s 6 Degrees Project, which aims to bring people from developed countries together with women in poorer nations. We are only ‘6 degrees’ – or 6 introductions - away from everyone else in the world.
Like all our work, both campaigns worked to give a voice to those affected by the challenges of poverty and discrimination, which was achieved by working in close coalition with our colleagues in other countries and communities on the ground.
And it’s thanks to your support that we were able to have an impact. Whether you signed an action card, joined in online or took one of the many other routes to register your involvement, the action you take plays a crucial role in keeping the pressure on decision makers.
For more ways to make a difference, have a look at our action page and again a HUGE thank you for your help!
