Oxfam has been working in Cuba since 1993 with local partners to support equitable and sustainable development. Oxfam works in municipalities, with national organizations and with regional groups to promote South-South experience sharing around active citizenship and participation, gender equality and risk reduction.
Focused on the Eastern Provinces of Cuba, Oxfam works at the municipal level with local partner organizations to improve communities’ capacities to promote participation, food security, gender equality and disaster risk reduction.
Our national engagement with partners focuses on strengthening capacities for active citizenship, to ensure that women’s voices are heard and respected and to strengthen local capacities and public awareness to fight against violence against women.
Oxfam supports communities to be better prepared to respond to hurricanes and other natural disasters and provides humanitarian support if local capacities are overthrown. Regionally, Oxfam supports South-South learning exchanges and Cubans participation in international networks, mostly in Central America and the Caribbean.
