At Oxfam our belief is that respect for human rights will help lift people out of poverty and injustice, allow them to assert their dignity and guarantee sustainable development.
When we speak about having a rights-based approach, we mean the ability to create and sustain a livelihood, basic accommodations, safe from harm, the opportunity to be heard, and most importantly to be treated as equals.
Oxfam International is an international group of independent non-governmental organizations dedicated to fighting poverty and related injustice around the world. The Oxfams work together internationally to achieve greater impact by their collective efforts.
- Development - Work with and through partners and communities on long-term programs to eradicate poverty and combat injustice
Emergencies - We deliver immediate life-saving assistance to people affected by natural disasters or conflict, and help to build their resilience to future disasters
Campaigning - We 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.
