Start fundraising for ActionAid

Do you want to raise money and support an incredible charity? If so, then you’ve come to the right place! Here you can find everything you need to support ActionAid and the amazing people we work with around the world.

We’re here to help you and your class every step of the way with tons of great ideas, handy resources and one-to-one support.

What does ActionAid do?

ActionAid helps people in their communities work together to solve their problems. We work in countries in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. Most of the people who organise and do ActionAid’s work in these countries are local people, so they’re in the best position to tell us what they want and need.

We listen first and then work with the people whose lives are held back by poverty so they have a voice and are involved in the decisions that affect their lives.

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
