Change is possible,

and it comes from the

power in people

ActionAid is a global movement of people fighting for women’s rights, social justice and an end to poverty.

This, our international website, is a hub for all of our activities, opinions, stories and insights.

We'd love you to stay and have a look around. You can also go to any of our other country websites.
