Around the globe, we work to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. By supporting schools, to helping farmers sell their crops for a fair price, to improving access to people with HIV/AIDS to health care - our long-term development projects are transforming lives.
We work with communities to tackle the causes of poverty by a combination of hands on know-how, financial investment and education. We give people a voice to speak out against the laws, actions and policies that keep them in poverty. This is how we create lasting change.
Rwandan women head close to a third of agricultural households and provide almost two thirds of the labour on family farms. Despite this, they have very little control over the sale of cash crops. With the support of Oxfam, the women members of the Tuzamurane cooperative grow and sell pineapples together and are no longer trapped in a low income cycle.
