Union Aid supports working people, advocating for their rights and the right of their communities, so they can live with dignity and prosperity in Asia and the Pacific.

“Now we are making strong decisions. Previously no-one respected us because we did not have proper jobs. Now we can improve our lives and be a model to other people.” Raja Lakshmi, president of the Narikuravar Beadwork Craft Cooperative.

We are a registered charity helping to alleviate poverty and achieve workers justice internationally by supporting the development of unions, worker led cooperatives and education facilities for workers and their families.

We believe that all people have the right to fair pay, freedom from debt and violence, access to safe housing and transport, education and healthcare and that empowering workers to advocate for their rights is a way to achieve this.
