Charity of the month – ActionAid UK

The charity I am supporting this month is ActionAid UK. This charity is focused on the rights of women and girls. ActionAid’s vision is a world without poverty and injustice, in which every person enjoys their right to a life of dignity. One of the biggest causes of poverty in the world is the denial of women’s and girls’ rights, so it is refreshing to find a charity focusing on these issues to help elevate poverty.

ActionAid UK deals with violence against women and girls, women’s economic empowerment, and women’s and girls’ rights in humanitarian crises. Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is a fundamental human rights violation. It affects around one in three women and girls around the world and is a major cause of concern. One of the ways of reducing this trend of violence is by helping women earn a sustainable living. An empowered woman is a strong woman, which is why I am happy to see women’s economic empowerment at the top of the list of what ActionAid UK is all about.
