Sparkle and Share

Dress up in your festive finery and support women and girls

Where your money goes

Money raised will support ActionAid's vital work, helping to end violence and fight poverty so that all women, everywhere, can create the future they want.

Meet Florence, the director of the ActionAid Tusitukirewamu Women's network in Kampala, Uganda. Tusitukirewamu means 'Let's Rise Together', and for 20 years the ActionAid-funded network has been working to end violence against women in Uganda, and supporter survivors.

A survivor of violence herself, Florence works tirelessly in her community to support women in need. She ensures women have a safe space to sleep, can access counselling and take their cases to court. She told us that, due to the pandemic, her work has become more critical than ever.

This Christmas, Florence will be on the front line and working around the clock to help women who are trapped with their abusers. It is vital that we stand with her.

By taking part in Sparkle and Share you can support women like Florence. A gift of £12 could provide essentials like clothing, underwear, soap and sanitary protection for survivors of violence who have fled with nothing.
