What we're doing
Oxfam has been active in Zambia since the early 1980s. Of a population of 13.1 million, 54.4% of people live below the poverty line. Poverty is worse in rural areas, and women are hit hardest, with over half of female-headed households in poverty.
Oxfam in Zambia works with partners in agriculture, holding government and the private sector accountable in the use of natural resources, women's rights and humanitarian help.
Our goal is to reduce poverty and inequality by helping Zambia grow in favour of people living in poverty and significantly advance women's rights.
