ActionAid Australia

ActionAid Australia is a global women’s rights organisation that empowers women on the frontlines of injustice to mobilise and transform their communities. We work across 45 countries and represent a global movement of women standing together to confront injustices and build a world where all women thrive.

We partner with local women’s rights organisations to support women living in poverty to access the resources, trainings, and technology they need to lead change for gender equality and social justice at the local, regional and global level. Because we know when women are given the resources and opportunity to lead: more lives are saved, women and girls are better protected from violence and women’s position in society is transformed.

Empower Women. Change the World.

“ActionAid Australia supports women on the frontlines of injustice. We give women the space, the skills and the knowledge to drive change in their own lives. This is what makes us different. We’re supporting women’s self-determination and ability to make their own choices and decisions. Our role is to facilitate and support that process.”

Michelle Higelin, Executive Director
