Around the world, millions of girls living in the world’s poorest places are facing abuse and exploitation. Eight-year-old Aniker lives in one of the most deprived areas of Bangladesh. Girls like Aniker are at risk of human trafficking, forced labour and child slavery. No child should face these kinds of dangers.
ActionAid is providing shelters to keep girls like Aniker safe from harm. Our locally recruited staff are working to make sure that girls who are barely surviving have access to food, healthcare, counselling and education.
This Christmas, will you keep a girl like Aniker safe from harm? A regular gift from you can help protect girls who are living on the margins of survival, and change their lives for good.
What ActionAid does
Around the world, women and children are affected the most by poverty. From the moment they are born, girls especially face inequalities and injustice in almost every aspect of their lives.
ActionAid puts women and children 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.
