Africa is the heart of ActionAid. It’s where our head office is, and it’s where we started our work more than 40 years ago. We’re working with inspiring people in Africa, from Masai women activists to former child soldiers in Liberia to teachers in Senegal.
ActionAid works in more than 21 countries across Africa, and the ActionAid International Secretariat is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Key themes in our work are HIV & AIDS prevention, care and treatment, peace building, famine relief and food rights, and education.
