We want a world without poverty, so we work with local people to fight hunger, seek justice for women and education for children, and cope with emergencies.
Wherever there is poverty and injustice, in over 40 countries in Africa, Asia and the Americas, ActionAid is working to help people free themselves from poverty.
We work with and support the poorest and most vulnerable people to fight for and gain their rights to food, shelter, work, basic healthcare and a voice in the decisions that affect their lives.
Among them are widows, orphans, the homeless and disabled, people with HIV & AIDS, tribal peoples and religious minorities.
We also champion poor people’s rights through international campaigns on food rights, HIV & AIDS and education.
Working with more than 2,000 partners worldwide, ActionAid's fight against poverty has reached over 19 million people in Africa, Asia and the Americas.
