What ActionAid does

Whether it’s the result of being displaced by war, recovering from the aftermath of an earthquake, or simply being born into a deprived community, women and girls are the most affected by poverty.

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.

Almost all of the people and partners who run our programmes are from the developing world. This means our staff are on the ground and experiencing poverty first hand. We see day-to-day how poverty affects people’s lives, and are uniquely placed to give a voice to the women and children who suffer the most.

We also help women and communities prepare for and recover from disasters, a time when they can be at their most vulnerable. We demand action to change the factors that keep poor people poor at local, national and international level. We don’t walk away until we’ve achieved lasting change.
