Mission Statement

ActionAid's mission is to work with poor and excluded people around the world to eradicate poverty by overcoming the injustice and inequity that cause it.

At ActionAid, we believe in people's right to food, water, shelter and education. But we also know that helping people understand, fight for and secure these rights is the most effective way to end poverty - for good. In the US, ActionAid educates policy makers about issues that impact global poverty. Around the world, ActionAid works in local communities to tackle the issues that allow poverty and injustice to persist - problems like gender inequality, corruption and poor governance.

We work side by side with inspiring people who are fighting their way out of poverty, helping them find their own solutions and their own voice. We listen to and learn from poor people to identify and help them fulfill their own needs, encouraging them to lobby decision-makers in their own countries, and campaigning and calling for change from those who hold power on the international stage.
