Strategic Priorities

Our mission for A Just and Caring World for Women and Children is to support the leadership and agency of women and children who
are excluded and live in poverty.

To do this we have four strategic objectives: To address the systematic and structural causes of gender-based violence; promote women’s leadership in humanitarian contexts; amplify feminist alternatives for economic & climate justice; diversify funding, inspire and engage our supporters.

We have also set our strategic enablers to support us to achieve our vision, including: upholding excellent standards of accountability and governance; committing to anti-racism, shifting power, and decolonisation; ensuring high-quality programming, embedding learning, and evaluation; and focusing on safeguarding.


Our Strategy Process

In developing this strategy we asked 15 people working locally, nationally and globally on women’s rights in Kenya, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Malawi, Ireland (including women within the Direct Provision system in Ireland), and in Europe what they thought needs to happen to deliver transformative change in women’s lives.

Our Strategic Direction

The next five years will build on the foundations of ActionAid Ireland’s work to date, guided by the following commitments:

  • Building the power of the furthest behind women
  • Building on the power of the collective ActionAid federation
  • Shifting power will guide our work overall
  • Engage and inspire our supporters in Ireland
  • Engage in programmatic work in Ireland where there is added value
  • Deeply value our people and feminist practice
