ActionAid

Founded in 1972, ActionAid has been fighting poverty worldwide for over 30 years. In 2013, ActionAid's work reached 15 million people in Africa, Asia and Latin America. 

At ActionAid we take advantage of over 30 years of knowledge and experience in fighting poverty. We don't impose solutions, but work with communities over many years to strengthen their own efforts to throw off poverty. 

With more than 2,000 partners worldwide, we work with and support the poorest and most vulnerable people to secure their rights to food, shelter, work, basic healthcare and a voice in the decisions that affect their lives.
