This resource uses case studies to explore Oxfam's strategies for overcoming poverty, and challenges some of the misconceptions people may have about the work of international charities. It introduces the idea of the 'multiplier' effect and highlights the role of women in development.

Young people are then challenged to identify how they can become 'multipliers' on behalf of the communities Oxfam works with, by raising awareness of how Oxfam works and by fundraising for Oxfam's Motherhood Appeal.
