Fundraise at work

Fundraising at work is a great way to get your colleagues together, and unite in support of a cause you really care about. And don’t forget, some workplaces will match the money raised by their staff, doubling your fundraising efforts. Why not ask yours?

Fabeha Monir/Oxfam

“I belong to this community.”

Having fled terrifying violence in Myanmar, almost one million Rohingya people are still living in the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Living conditions are harsh, especially for women who face worsened personal safety and greater family responsibilities.

At two Oxfam and partner-supported women’s centres in Cox’s Bazar, Yeasmin (pictured) and other women are learning to read, write and make items like clothing and fishing nets to sell. Because of the violence they have experienced, they’re also taking part in trauma-recovery activities, where they can form friendships and learn about their rights.
