Oxfam is a global movement of people working towards a world without poverty. And we won’t rest until we get the job done.
We respond fast in emergencies, and stay to help people rebuild their lives. We work on long-term projects with communities determined to shape a better future for themselves. And we campaign for genuine, lasting change.
It all starts with one simple fact: all human lives are of equal value and full of potential. Experience tells us with the right support and training, people can work their own way out of poverty.
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Oxfam partners with organisations who have unique local expertise, connections and experience. Doing so not only saves us time and money, but also helps foster trust and respect in the communities we support. And through working together, infrastructures are established that will keep doing good work when the communities we work with are ready to go it alone.
Poverty’s a big nut to crack. But even the biggest problems can be cut down to size if we all chip in and chip away. With Oxfam staff, volunteers and supporters doing so much in so many countries, we don’t think poverty stands much of a chance.
