ActionAid is one of the UK's largest international development charities working in over 45 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We listen to, learn from and work in partnership with 15 million of the world’s poorest and excluded people. ActionAid tackles the effects of poverty and 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.
At ActionAid we have over 40 years of knowledge and experience in fighting poverty. We don’t impose solutions but work with communities over many years to strengthen their own efforts to throw off poverty and work for better lives for them and their families. In everything that we do we:
- Work together with poor people, local partners and organisations in combating poverty
- Focus on addressing the causes of poverty, not just the results.
We have prioritised the five areas where we can make the most difference: education, hunger, economic justice, emergencies, and rights for women and girls.
