Host your own event!
Here are some of our favourite ideas:
- Hold a pot luck at work (and double your efforts by asking your employer to match the funds you raise!)
- Host a dinner party
- Donate your birthday (ask your friends to Donate to ActionAid in lieu of presents)
- Have a garage sale and donate the earnings.
- Are you a part of a club? Get the community involved and host an event!
The funds you raise could:
- Support women as they learn life-changing skills in farming, money handling and livestock rearing.
- Teach young girls about their rights and how to prevent injustices from happening by standing up for themselves.
- Help end violence against women and support survivors of violence by providing medical, emotional and psychological support and safe spaces.
- Campaign and advocate on behalf of those who aren't able to speak for themselves, ensuring their stories are told and that the government know we will not stand for injustices!
- Respond to emergencies in case of disasters and conflict by providing immediate relief and a plan to build resilience within the community so they can better handle disasters in the future.
