This grant will continue to support the Valuing Women’s Work and Young Urban Women projects under one grant. ActionAid US will promote movement building with young urban women in Ghana, India, and South Africa on issues around economic security, bodily integrity, and unpaid care work. ActionAid USA will support capacity building, convenings, networking, and presence of advocates in key decision-making spaces. Using participatory research, ActionAid USA will generate wider alliances on issues of inequality and tax justice, and advocate for government accountability for gender-responsive public services and economic policy alternatives with a feminist lens.

Grants to this Grantee
for a project to ensure that economies and public service systems work for women and girls globally
ActionAid USA is the U.S. branch of ActionAid International, which is a global federation working for a world free from poverty and injustice. ActionAid’s work aims to build local to global momentum for social, economic, and environmental justice, driven by women and young people living in poverty and exclusion. This grant will support ActionAid’s work on women’s economic justice and rights through the Young Urban Women and Valuing Women’s Work programs in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, and South Africa, as well as regionally and globally. These programs collaborate in challenging mainstream macroeconomic policies, narratives, and institutions that fail to recognize and value women’s paid and unpaid work and undermine their access to decent work and bodily autonomy and integrity.
