This section highlights just some of the programming, advocacy, and research that Oxfam undertakes in order to end the injutice of poverty around the world.
Oxfam takes a rights-based approach to its development, humanitarian, and campaign work.
As a rights-based organization, accountability, particularly to the communities we seek to serve, is of the highest importance to us.
To effectively fight poverty, citizens must be able to demand that public spending meet the needs and priorities of poor people.
Climate change hits poor communities first and worst. It disproportionately affects those most vulnerable and least able to adapt. Oxfam helps these communities prepare for disasters and build resilience to adapt and find long-term solutions.
Oxfam works to ensure that women, men, and children affected by conflicts and disasters receive life-saving assistance and are empowered to protect themselves from future humanitarian emergencies.
Three-quarters of people living in poverty reside in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. Oxfam believes that empowering small-scale farmers is essential to fighting poverty, hunger, and food insecurity.
Oxfam aims to transform gender power relations and norms, through campaigning, programming, advocacy, research to facilitate women's articulation of their own voice and agendas, thus reiterating commitment to right based development and putting women at the center of Oxfam's work.
Few Americans would disagree that the aim of US foreign assistance must be to help people help themselves. Oxfam believes that aid is not the solution to poverty; people are.
Poverty endures in the US, trapping millions of people without hope of mobility for themselves or their children. Oxfam exposes the injustice of poverty in such a wealthy nation, and offers pragmatic solutions to chronic problems.
Oxfam believes the private sector can be a valuable contributor and partner in addressing poverty, injustice, and inequality around the world.
Oxfam advocates for just government policies and corporate practices in the oil, gas, and mining industries, and supports the right of communities to participate meaningfully in decisions about the development of natural resources.
Oxfam believes that building mechanisms for resilience within communities is critical to addressing poverty.
Trade generates incredible wealth and connects people everywhere, yet millions of people in poor countries are not benefitting, and many are actually worse off, because trade rules are rigged against them. Oxfam is committed to making trade fair.
