We are a global movement of people
working together to eliminate poverty by tackling inequality.
At Oxfam Australia, we believe all lives are equal and no-one should live in poverty.
We believe that in a wealthy world, poverty is unjustifiable and preventable, that the present state of inequality and injustice must be challenged, and that with the right help, people can change their lives for the better.
That’s why we are part of a global movement of people working together to eliminate poverty by tackling inequality.
Working with partners, allies, communities and our supporters, we are changing the world for the better at every level, at scale, here and now, and for the long term.
Oxfam takes a human rights-based approach to development, helping to both foster in people an ability to claim those rights, and establishing capacity for duty bearers to fulfil their obligations to their citizens. Our work ensures the representation of vulnerable people affected by marginalisation and injustice.
