Why does ActionAid exist?

Millions of children in countries all around the world live in poverty. And more than one billion people, mostly women and girls, lack a basic education – that means often they don’t get the chance to go to school and they never learn to read and write.

At ActionAid we think that every child has the right to food, shelter, basic healthcare and free, quality education, wherever they live in the world.


1.2 billion people have to survive 
on less than £1 a day


750 million people don’t have clean drinking water


57 million children aged 5 — 11 years old do not go to school


68 million children have to go to school hungry
