Your gift, this Christmas, can help us be there for women and girls when they need it most.

How you can stand with women this Christmas

Every day, millions of women and girls around the world are fighting for their lives, trapped with their abusers during coronavirus lockdowns.

But in communities large and small, away from the spotlight, women and girls are leading the change.

With ActionAid's support they are building a new world—one that’s  safe and equal. A world in which no woman lives in fear of violence.

It is vital that we stand with them.

How women like Florence are leading the change

As part of her work at the Tusitukirewamu Women’s Network, Florence goes into schools to teach girls about their rights. That’s where she met Hameria

Hameria (left) was just nine years old, but she'd already lost her parents. 

When they died she was taken in by family friends but, once a lifeline, the family had become abusive.

A survivor of violence herself, Florence saw that something was seriously wrong. And she would not stand by and do nothing.

So she welcomed Hameria into her own home, and helped her to recover. Now, everything has changed for Hameria.

"I'm so inspired by Florence’s work," she says. "I want to help vulnerable people like her."

Florence is my mother, mentor, teacher, everything."
