In 2016, ActionAid and those it works alongside – people living with poverty and injustice, their communities, and other organisations and allies – achieved important changes and victories in the struggle for social justice, poverty eradication and gender equality. Inspiring examples of people-led change included female paralegals successfully combatting harmful traditional practices in communities in Nigeria and women-led emergency response to the devastation of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti (see the photo stories).
