Making your voice heard

People power influences decision makers. Be part of the action, wherever you are. You can sign up for e-alerts in the UK. You will be the first to know about campaigning actions. 

Joining the conversation

Connect with people like you creating change and follow our ActionAid twitter feed via our twit list.


Participants spend a minimum of three days and nights staying with a family in a village and living, as far as possible, how that family lives. The idea is that by sharing, however briefly, in the lives of their hosts they will start to understand those lives – their richness and their challenges – in new ways. Find out more about immersions.

Take a challenge

In Greece, and fancy an adventure? Why not take the Kenya Challenge. Or a trek organised through our UK office?    


A small amount goes a long way, and a major gift makes a huge difference. You can donate from the following countries: DenmarkUK, FranceUSA, Ireland and Greece. You can also support an urgent appeal in Liberia or give a gift via Sweden to one of our projects.


ActionAid Greece offers some great T-shirts and Christmas cards that you can buy online!
