Goal: Thank ActionAid for its efforts to reduce poverty
ActionAid is a non-profit organization that works directly with congressional leaders and policy makers to inform them of the problems facing poverty stricken individuals and the negative impacts of global poverty. In a world where the effects of poverty are responsible for the deaths of 28 children, every minute of every day, ActionAid is proving to be a significant influence on the lives of those who are less fortunate.
ActionAid’s mission is simple: ‘To work with poor and marginalized people to eradicate poverty by overcoming the injustice and inequality that cause it.’ Not only is ActionAid an advocate for poverty reduction, but they are proactive and forthright in their approach as they work closely within communities to tackle issues such as gender inequality, corruption and governmental repression. Through this non-patronizing method, they respect the personal abilities of individuals who are poor and encourage them to find strength within themselves to change their lives. Apart of ActionAid’s poverty reduction agenda are other commendable highlights such as sustainable solutions to ending global hunger, disaster relief, response and preparedness and fighting for the rights of women and girls all around the world.
