How Projects Direct works

You view Projects Direct online

Each year we will present a range of community-based projects across the world, tackling different problems. You can read about these and get a feel for the causes and effects of poverty and the changes we are working to make in some of the world's poorest countries.

Simply choose a project from the list. Read the summary page and if you want to know more, download the PDF for that project.

Interested? Questions?

Please contact us, or ask us to get in touch with you. We can discuss the projects further or answer your questions. Take a look at our frequently asked questions too.

You make a decision

We hope you will want to donate to one of our projects. Your donation will go straight to your chosen project, and it will be put to work straight away.

Keeping you updated

We will send or email you the progress reports after 6 and 12 months by post or email. These will let you see how the project is progressing and what difference your support is making.

We will also tell you when things are not going to plan, and share the valuable learning from these experiences.

If you find making a direct difference to some of the world's poorest communities rewarding, tell your friends - or why not encourage your company to support a project?

 I support Oxfam projects because I can see my money being used to achieve measurable goals assisting in the long term development of identified communities.

Neil Kitchener QC, who has supported Oxfam for over 20 years.

Life changing. That's how I'd describe my trip to Bangladesh with Oxfam. Seeing the projects was inspirational, as was meeting the women who are helping to lift themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty. Seeing first-hand the difference the money we raise makes has been so important in helping us to build support for the fundraising initiatives that we are running amongst our staff.
