ActionAid was started in 1972 by Cecil Jackson-Cole a British businessman. The organisation started out working with just 88 children in Kenya and India. Today ActionAid helps more than 13 million people across 42 countries globally. Nearly 1 in 10 children die before their 5th birthday. You can help make a difference to that statistic by sponsoring a child with ActionAid either through a monthly payment or a one off donation of as little as £5. Your money will go towards feeding clothing and educating children that need it most.
