ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.
We focus on the people that others forget. People in poverty. People who face discrimination. People whose voices are ignored.
We help people 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 our resources, influence and experience to help people find their own solutions.
We listen to what people 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.
In Ghana we’re working hard to:
Build and strengthen poor people’s power to claim their rights and live a life of dignity.
Challenge the injustice and inequity within communities, at the national level and globally, that perpetuates power over poor people and other oppressed groups.
Support and enhance civil society’s power to work with others to develop collective strength against poverty and its causes.
Strengthen poor people’s power within by nurturing self confidence and self esteem to define their own agenda and advocate on equal terms with everyone.
