Our Mission

To achieve social justice, gender equality, and poverty eradication by working with people living in poverty and exclusion, their communities, people’s organizations, activists, social movements, and supporters.

The Need

Together with people on the frontlines of poverty and injustice, ActionAid tackles the symptoms of unequal power – poverty, hunger, gender-based violence, climate change, conflict, and disaster – and challenges the ideologies, legal systems, and social norms that lie underneath.

The Solution

ActionAid works to provide both short and long-term support for communities impacted by disasters, poverty, climate change, and more. While fulfilling immediate needs, they aim to provide long-term support to build communities' capacity to respond to future crises.

Our Impact

When disaster struck across Asia, ActionAid was already embedded in local communities, ready to mobilize and advocate. They also provide ongoing assistance - in India, for instance, they work with thousands of young women in 120 slums to advocate for their rights.

ActionAid’s vision is a just, equitable, and sustainable world in which every person enjoys the right to a life of dignity, freedom from poverty, and all forms of oppression. They know this can only be done by shifting power – towards communities and away from elites – and aid as traditionally practiced does not accomplish this. That’s why ActionAid takes action in partnership with people on the frontlines of poverty and injustice in more than 50 countries, including Afghanistan, the Arab Region, Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, occupied Palestinian territories, The Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
