We’d like to say a huge thank you for the generous donations of all our supporters, from our community fundraisers through to our child sponsors, who provide over 60% of our income each year.
Thousands of you are ActionAid child sponsors, such as seven-year-old Molly Jones and her family who sponsor a child in Malawi.
25 adventurers took part in our First-Hand Experience in Cambodia in 2016, where they built a new classroom block at a primary school in Kampot.
