A world without poverty and injustice in which every person enjoys their right to a life with dignity.


To work with poor and excluded people to eradicate poverty and injustice.

ActionAid works with children, families and communities across over 40 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America and Caribbean to alleviate poverty. In the twenty years since ActionAid started operations in Bangladesh, we have evolved from an organisation intently focused on development in a specific geographically remote area in Bangladesh, to an organisation of national significance.

Today ActionAid Bangladesh works in over 30 districts and with almost 90 community-based partner organisations. In addition, it engages with national and regional development networks for promotion and advocacy of specific issues and policies.
