“ A positive future now. An equal future for all, free from the injustice of poverty.”

Oxfam is a global movement of people who are fighting inequality to beat poverty together. We tackle the inequalities that make and keep people poor. We save and protect lives in times of crisis, work with people to build resilience and rebuild their livelihoods and, because we want lasting solutions, we campaign for genuine, durable change.

We want a world in which everyone can speak up to power, claim their human rights, and build a better future for themselves. This means addressing issues like climate change, land rights, and gender justice: because we are united by our belief that a life of dignity and opportunity is not a privilege for some, but a right for everyone.
