Global federation ActionAid fights for a world devoid of injustice and poverty.
ActionAid International encourages diversity and accepts applications from all facets of the community.
Candidates who support ActionAid’s SHEA and Safeguarding policies and values will be recruited, according to the organization.
To promote safer workplace environments, ActionAid will only hire candidates who share its commitment to SHEA, safeguarding, and ActionAid’s core principles. ActionAid is likewise committed to preventing applicants who aim to harm others from joining the organization as a deterrent.
Our plan is to create an international movement for social, economic, and environmental justice, led by those who are marginalized and in poverty.
In actuality, this entails collaborating closely with those who are poor and marginalized as well as with civil society organizations, social movements, and their supporters. Together, we carry out grassroots initiatives, offer crisis aid, and advocate for issues like women’s economic rights, tax equity, and climate justice.
Women, politics and economics, land and environment, and emergencies make up the bulk of our work. Women’s rights are a special area of emphasis for us and a common theme in all of our activities.
In 1972, ActionAid was established as a nonprofit. We embraced a human rights-based strategy for development in the 1990s. We founded the ActionAid International federation in 2003. Johannesburg, South Africa, is home to our main office. Additionally, we have hubs throughout Europe, the Americas, and Asia.

Women’s work is frequently disregarded, underestimated, and unpaid. They have unstable jobs and risky working conditions. There needs to be more corporate accountability for safeguarding human rights.
Women and girls are at risk of violence all across the world. The societal and cultural conventions that contribute to women’s vulnerability must be challenged.
Beliefs, resource availability, and economy are structural factors that contribute to violence against women. The needs of underprivileged and excluded women must be met, and their rights must be protected and advanced.
