ActionAid works in 45 countries across Asia, Africa and the Americas, supporting people to break free from poverty and live a life of dignity. Working with the most disadvantaged people, we fight for the protection of land and agriculture, quality education, women and girls’ rights, and for governments to be held to account. We provide humanitarian relief and work to build resilience to future disasters. We listen to what people really need and use our resources, influence and experience to work with communities and help them find their own solutions to create a better life for themselves and their children.
