What you’ll receive

  • Sign up and we’ll send everything to you by email – no need to wait for the post.
  • You’ll receive six different days of activities, starting off in the rainforests of South America.
  • As you journey on, you’ll find out about places and lives that are very different to yours.

You don’t need any special materials to enjoy round-the-world activities with Discovery Days! All activities use items you’re likely to have at home. They are designed for children aged six to 11 – and some can be done without adult supervision.

About us

ActionAid is an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty. Our dedicated local staff are changing the world with women and girls – so that all women, everywhere, can create the future they want.

As a helping hand during this global crisis, we’re giving all our Discovery Days activities to you for free! But if you’d like to give a donation to our work, your support could help stop the spread of coronavirus and save lives.

Where your money goes

90% of your donation, after fundraising costs, will go to support ActionAid's Coronavirus Appeal. 

The remaining 10% will be retained for ActionAid’s Emergency Action Fund which will only be used for ensuring we are prepared and able to respond quickly and more effectively to future emergencies and crises. If the total amount raised for this appeal exceeds the funds needed for the response, ActionAid will transfer the remaining balance to the Emergency Action Fund. All Gift Aid claimed on donations will fund ActionAid’s work across the world, wherever the need is greatest.
