About us

Oxfam is a global movement of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. It's an injustice which can, and must, be overcome. 


We lift lives for good

When we give one person a lift so they can help themselves, they will lift others in their families and communities. We call this chain reaction lifting lives for good.

To spread that change and make it last, political solutions are also needed to tackle the root causes of poverty and create societies where empowered individuals can thrive.
