Oxfam female friendly latrines at a secondary school in Nepal

Supporting teenage girls after the Nepal earthquake

Samjhana was keen to resume her school studies as soon as possible. When her school reopened one month after the earthrquake, however, nothing was the same. With a partner organization we have worked to rebuild the school with even better hygiene facilities than before, encouraging girls to stay in school for longer.

Ebola outbreak in West Africa - Oxfam's response

Oxfam has reached over 1.4 million people in Ebola affected countries since the start of our response in May 2014. Today, the Ebola outbreak is easing—but it is not over. We are working with partners and communities to track down cases and prevent new hotspots from emerging. We can not stop fighting the Ebola outbreak until we get to zero cases in West Africa.
