Introduction to Oxfam

  • Lift one person
    and they will lift others...

    We know people have the power to change their lives, and the lives of those around them. All they need is a little lift.

     

    ...here's a short film about what we do.

  • ...what does a lift look like?

    ...with simple smart solutions

    Ipaishe's story

  • Make the impossible, possible

    Speaking out is powerful.It can change minds and influence decision makers.

  •  

    Oxfam's campaigning on education and health care for the world's poorest people has gained international support from governments including the UK. That means more kids in school learning, and more midwives like Cecilia looking after mums during childbirth.

  • ...so when injustice causes poverty, we stand against it.

  • Q: How many people supported Oxfam's campaigning in 2011?

    A: 1.6 million.

  • Be there for the long haul

    With your support we can be ready to save and protect people around the clock. And we stay long after disaster hits to help lift lives for good.

  •  

    So we're ready around the clock to save and protect people...

  • ...staying long after, leaving life better than before.
