They are grateful for the ongoing support from the Canadian government and for the generous donations from individuals, organizations, unions, foundations and businesses, whose contributions make their work possible.

Oxfam's Mission Statement
Ending global poverty begins with woman rights.
My re-devolped Mission Statment
Living in a word with less poverty improves woman's rights.
My logo shows that more woman are in poverty now and is the reason for putting a stop to this.
Their rights are not being respected as they should be and are treated less of themselves.
Remember ending poverty begins with woman's rights...
In just 15 years poverty has been halved...
in the next 15 it could be gone....
