Oxfam in Mexico

At Oxfam Mexico, we promote four social causes:

  • Civil society and citizenship - We work to facilitate the shared responsibility between the government and society; in particular, to demand that the State guarantees the quality of public education and health services.
  • Food justice and sustainable development - We reinforce the ability of local communities to use sustainable natural ressources and to adapt to the effects of climate change.
  • Migration and development – We are working to increase the role of migrant organizations in order to influence national and regional public policies with a view to achieving full recognition of the rights of migrants and a more inclusive development.
  • Humanitarian action - We respond to emergencies to help to ensure that the people affected  receive immediate assistance. We also help to sustainably rebuild the communities and the livelihoods of the population.
