At Oxfam, we believe all lives are equal and no-one should live in poverty.
We join forces with people who share this belief, to empower communities to build better lives for themselves.
That’s why we are there on the ground, not only to save lives in times of crisis, but also to develop lasting solutions.
Our work spans wide because there are many causes of poverty.
That’s why we’re also in front of decision-makers, governments and corporations, and speak out on the big issues.
Together we are tackling poverty by changing minds, systems and lives.
