Oxfam is an international confederation of eighteen organizations networked together in 92 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty.
They work directly with communities and seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.
Working with more than 3,000 local partner organizations, they work with people living in poverty striving to exercise their human rights, assert their dignity as full citizens and take control of their lives.
They work with and through partners and communities on long-term programs to eradicate poverty and combat injustice.
They deliver immediate life-saving assistance to people affected by natural disasters or conflict, and help to build their resilience to future disasters.
They are part of a global movement for change. We raise public awareness of the causes of poverty and encourage ordinary people to take action for a fairer world.
They press decision-makers to change policies and practices that reinforce poverty and injustice.
They can speak with authority as a result of thorough research and analysis, and the real experience of their partners in developing countries.
