Help young people to raise awareness of how communities around the world are working with Oxfam and partners to beat poverty now and forever.

This action guide for ages 7 to 14 provides a fun way to engage learners with persuasive writing, literacy and active global citizenship. Message in a Book asks learners to collect books for Oxfam shops, and write letters to communicate with customers about Oxfam's work. A great school project for World Book Day, or any other time of year.

This action guide links to our Explore the work of Oxfam resource in which learners use video, role play and case studies to learners to think critically about our basic needs in life, find out more about Oxfam's work to fight poverty and consider how we can all help to make a difference.
