ActionAid Australia

Securing human rights is the missing link between the world's rich and poor. It's the key to ending poverty.

People living in poverty, particularly women and girls, are often treated as less than human. Robbed of their dignity and sense of equality, they often feel they have no rights.

We focus on the poorest and most vulnerable. In practice, this is always women and girls. Women in poverty. Women who face discrimination. Women whose voices are ignored.

We help women and men fight for the rights that they are denied. Simple things, like the right to eat. The right to stay on their land. To an education. To have a say in the decisions that shape their lives.

We’re not about giving handouts or telling people what to do, because in the long run we know that doesn’t work. Instead, we use training and facilitation techniques proven help people - especially women - find their OWN solutions.

We listen to what women really want and need. We help communities take action together to hold their governments to account, and we give local organisations our support where they need it. Together, we’re making a lasting difference.
