THE STORY:

Oxfam’s approach is about tackling the conditions that cause poverty in the first place, rather than the distribution of material goods. We start by asking questions and challenging assumptions. What are the root causes of poverty? What can we do to change the power dynamics that keep people poor? These questions inform the four categories into which our work falls:

Saving lives: Oxfam assists the poorest communities when disaster strikes, but is also working to ensure greater local resilience and the capacity of local responders and governments to deliver disaster response.

Programs to overcome poverty and injustice: Oxfam invests in programs to help people assert their rights so that they can improve their lives.

Campaigning for social justice: Oxfam works to change the laws and practices that keep people trapped in poverty.

Public education: As part of our efforts to overcome poverty, Oxfam works to change the way people think about poverty and its causes.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Nearly one out of every three of us lives in poverty.
But we see a future in which no one does.

The way we see it, poverty is solvable­­—
A problem rooted in injustice.
Eliminate injustice and you can eliminate poverty.
We’re not saying it will be quick or easy,
but it can be done.
We won't patch a problem and then disappear.
We won't stand by silently and watch others suffer.

Instead, we stand together against injustice.
We recognize our responsibility to hold the
powerful accountable.
We see people’s power to change their lives.

It disturbs us that in a world as rich as ours,
many of us go hungry or don’t have clean water.
Many of us can’t claim our human rights.

It’s wrong.
And together we aim to do what’s right.
Oxfam. Right the wrong.
