ActionAid is an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty. Their dedicated local staff are changing the world with women and girls. They are ending violence and fighting poverty so that all women and girls, everywhere, can create the future they want. They make sure women and girls are safe from harm, able to earn a living and to claim their rights, and they prioritise their rights and leadership during times of crisis.
ActionAid’s rights-based approach aims to ensure that people are drivers of their own change and able to claim the rights they are entitled to. They focus on women and girls because the denial of their rights is a grave injustice and one of the underlying causes of poverty worldwide.
