ActionAid doesn’t just tackle the effects of poverty. We also change what keeps people poor. ActionAid improves people’s lives every day. But we know that’s not enough. So we work relentlessly to change whatever is keeping them trapped in poverty. This means we have a better chance of ending poverty for good.
ActionAid works in over 45 countries supporting vulnerable people through our work on issues such as women’s rights, HIV and AIDS, education, safety in emergencies and healthcare. Women’s rights are at the heart of all we do to bring about long-term, sustainable change, decided upon by the communities themselves.
