ActionAid is a partnership between people in rich and poor countries dedicated to ending poverty and injustice.

ActionAid works with local people to fight hunger and disease, seek justice and education for women, hold companies and governments accountable and cope with emergencies in over 40 countries. We want a world without poverty, where nobody goes to bed hungry.

  • Hunger

    Despite world leader's commitments to halve hunger by 2015, there are more hungry people now than at any time in history. But the causes of hunger aren't natural, they're manmade, and the solutions are within our power.

  • Education

    Over one billion people, mostly women, lack a basic education and illiteracy and poverty are closely linked. Our work is driven by the belief that every child has the right to a free, quality education, which the state must provide.

  • Economic justice

    Unfair trade rules, tax evasion and the power of big business all add up to a global economic system that tips the scales against the world's poorest people.

  • HIV and AIDS

    33.2 million people are living with HIV and AIDS today. We cannot end global poverty without tackling the spread of AIDS, which is devastating some of the poorest countries around the world.

  • Women's rights

    Wherever women and girls are disadvantaged, excluded, discriminated against and denied their rights, it keeps half the world's population poor. ActionAid is working to gain justice for women.
