ActionAid works with the poorest women and girls around the world, changing their lives for good. Founded in 1972, it works in 40 plus countries across Asia, Africa and the Americas, supporting people to break free from poverty, end inequality and live a life of dignity. It fights for resilient livelihoods, quality education and an end to all forms of violence against women and girls. It also provides life-saving humanitarian relief in emergencies.
The ALBORADA Trust has supported ActionAid since 2015, and has agreed grants of over £500,000 from 2017-2020 to assist their work in Nepal, Haiti and Sierra Leone, following the devastation caused by the Nepal earthquake, Hurricane Matthew and Ebola. In 2018 the Trust agreed a grant of £300,000 payable over three years for ActionAid’s work with Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. In 2019 the Trust approved a grant of £360,000 payable over three years for work in Mozambique and Zimbabwe to support communities to rebuild in aftermath of Cyclone Idai. In 2021, the Trust has granted £150,000 to help people affected by the Tigray conflict in Ethiopia.
