What ActionAid does
Around the world, women and girls are affected the most by poverty. From the moment they are born, girls face inequalities and injustice in almost every aspect of their lives.
ActionAid puts women and girls at the centre of our work across 45 countries. We make sure girls go to and stay in school, we work with communities to end gender-based violence, and we train women in the skills they need to earn a living.
We also help women and communities prepare for and recover from disasters, at a time when they can be at their most vulnerable. We demand action at local, national and international level. We don’t walk away until we’ve achieved lasting change.
How we use the money you give us
