More than 21,500 new supporters in the UK signed up to give a committed gift
Your incredible commitment helps us run projects around the world that empower women and girls.
In September 2020, we launched a campaign called Stand with Women. The campaign highlighted the hidden pandemic of escalating violence against women and girls, as exposed by the global Covid-19 crisis.
Florence is the Executive Director of the ActionAid-supported Tusitukirewamu Women’s Network in Kampala, Uganda. The network provides invaluable support, vital education, and life-changing training to women surviving violence.
I have a passion for working with women, to see that even the last woman can rise up, have her say and be heard."
Thank you to all our supporters for making projects like this possible.
Players of People's Postcode Lottery helped to empower young women
In 2020, thanks to the players of People's Postcode Lottery, we supported our work promoting girls' empowerment and promoting the rights of women.
In Ghana, People's Postcode Lottery has funded safe spaces for women to advocate for rights and distribute sanitary pads to over 1,600 members across five regions.
Our Gifts in Action help strengthen communities
Our supporters helped Shaher, from Afghanistan with the training and equipment needed to start beekeeping. Her new skill has transformed her life.
For the first time, ActionAid offered beekeeping gifts as part of its Gifts in Action range. Gifts in the ‘Beehives to Thrive’ category help women kickstart a new career in beekeeping and earn an independent income.
Before, women in my community didn’t have any opportunity to work except for household and caring activities... now, I spend profits from my beekeeping on my children’s education, buying new clothes for my children and supporting my husband with the household expenses."
