The difference you can make
At Oxfam we believe all lives are equal and no-one should live in poverty. Together we are on the ground, empowering communities to tackle poverty. As a partner of Oxfam you can support all areas of our work allowing us to sustain, develop and grow our programs. Three key areas:
- Long Term Development — Poor people can take control, solve their own problems, and rely on themselves – if they receive the right support. We fund long-term projects around the world and work in a range of areas, from water and sanitation to education and health, to bring about positive change in people’s lives.
- Responding to emergencies — People need help in an emergency – fast. We save lives by swiftly delivering aid, support and protection; and we help people prepare for future crises. Right now, we’re responding to these emergencies around the world. All of our work has one goal – to bring about positive change in the lives of people living in poverty.
- Campaigning for Change — Poverty has many complex causes, which means that there is no single, quick, or easy solution. Long-term change of the necessary scale requires more than just supporting people on the ground — it also requires political change, which is why our work must increase the power and self-determination of poor and disadvantaged people.
