She is the answer was a special ActionAid campaign backed by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) under its UK Aid Match initiative.

Between 5 March and 4 June 2021, the UK Government matched your donations, to fund the work of local women's champions in Cambodia to help women fight against climate change. 

We raised an incredible £2.26m including £1.08m of match funding from the UK government.

We cannot thank UK supporters enough for their generous donation to the "She is the Answer” climate change appeal. Your support paves a more significant path for our women's champions' initiative to achieve their ultimate goal by ensuring that sustainable and gender-just solutions are reached in tackling the climate crisis!”

Samphy Eng, Programme Quality Officer, ActionAid Cambodia.

ActionAid's She is the answer campaign told the stories of women and girls living in the world’s poorest countries who are among the least responsible for the changing climate - yet they feel its impacts the most.
