ActionAid International works in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas to fight global poverty and tackle the injustice and inequity that cause it.
ActionAid, the third largest development agency in the UK, works with the poorest and most disadvantaged people across the developing world to address the root causes of their poverty and improve the quality of their lives.
ActionAid aims to tackle the causes and effects of absolute poverty through long-term development programmes and influencing work. It works directly with local communities and organisations, helping to ensure that basic needs are met, promoting basic rights as the focus in all our work as well as providing emergency assistance when necessary. The primary funding source consists of private donations, with approximately 15 per cent coming from official sources.
