Stop the profiting from poverty

Global Justice Now has a long history of campaigning against the misuse of the UK's aid budget. We fight against those who seek to profit from the UK's aid budget, push back against aid being used to privatise public services overseas and prevent the government from using aid to promote foreign, business and military interests around the world.


Re-imagining UK aid

We campaign for an alternative approach to aid spending that is steeped in principles of social justice, equality and the global redistribution of political and economic power. We campaign for progressive ways to spend aid that tackle the root causes of poverty.
