How you can get involved to help ActionAid change lives for good
ActionAid is an international charity working in over 45 countries. We work with the poorest women and girls in the world, changing their lives for good.
Our local staff provide immediate, hands-on support to women and children living on the margins of survival. Together we demand action at local, national and international level. We don’t walk away until we’ve achieved lasting change.
