Introducing Oxfam

Poverty isn't inevitable. It's just plain wrong.

Here’s a short film about what we do.

That's why we fight poverty at its roots...

What does a lift look like?

Last year, we gave goats to 140,000 people worldwide, providing milk, manure and a means to make a living.

In the last 12 months, 760,000 people helped to grow and produce more with simple things like seeds, fertilisers and livestock.

From digging wells in remote rural communities to emergency water systems in refugees camps, every year we make sure thousands of people get clean, life-saving water.

Pencils. School books. Teacher training. Building classrooms. We make sure children get the education they deserve.

So when injustice causes poverty, we stand against it.
