International

ActionAid is an international organisation, working with over 25 million people in more than 40 countries for a world free from poverty and injustice. ActionAid believes the people whose lives our work affects should decide how we’re run. It helps people use their own power to fight poverty and injustice. To this end, one of its programmes defends the rights of women and girls to live free from gender-based violence, have dignity in the face of HIV and AIDS, control their sexuality, and enjoy economic empowerment.
