MISSION

To work with poor and excluded people to eradicate poverty and injustice."

ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

WHERE YOUR SUPPORT GOES

We’re an international organization, working with over 15 million people in 45 countries for a world free from poverty and injustice

We work in 45 countries all over the world, in the places where we can make the biggest impact. We tackle poverty and the denial of human rights at a local level, and we challenge the causes behind them nationally and globally.

THE RESULTS

We work in more than 40 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America, with over 25 million poor people. Our work seeks to create and sustain better futures by providing relief from disasters and conflicts, empowering women, fighting hunger, holding governments accountable, and making education accessible.
We listen to and learn from poor people to identify and help them fulfill their own needs, encouraging them to lobby decision-makers in their own countries, and campaigning and calling for change from those who hold power on the international stage.
ActionAid works with coalitions of poor and excluded people from around the world, bringing their perspectives to bear on US policies that affect developing countries. We bring their voices into the American political arena and strengthen domestic support for changes in development policy.
