Transcript of OXFAM

What Do They Do?
They are determined to change that world by mobilizing the power of people against poverty.
Oxfam is a non-profit organization
They work directly with communities and we seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.
In all they do, Oxfam works with partner organizations and alongside vulnerable women and men to end the injustices that cause poverty.
Where are they Located?
Oxfam is an international
confederation of 17
organizations working together in
more than 90
If you visit this link you can see all the countries which oxfam is active in.
How do They Fight Poverty?
Using a six-sided strategy to weave together the complex web of their efforts and joining with others, they seek to overcome poverty.
Claiming their human rights
Oxfam believes When people have the power to
claim their basic human rights
, they can escape poverty – permanently. This core belief underpins their development programs
in more than 90 countries. With their partners, allies and with local communities, they help people to claim rights for themselves.
The right to gender jusctice
Human development is driven by empowered women.
women and girls are still massively under represented and often oppressed.
They work to
help them speak out and demand justice
, and to assert their leadership.

The right to
gender justice underpins all of their work.
Natural Disaster Strikes
help people caught up in natural disasters and conflict.
They typically

provide clean water, food and sanitation
in disaster zones. As far as they can, they strive to
ensure that civilians are protected
too. They also seek to
reduce the risk to poor people of future disasters
by continuing to work with them long after the immediate crisis is over.
Natural Recourse and Climate
Natural resources are vital for prosperity and poor people are often not getting their fair share.
This situation is worsened by the impacts of climate change that
the international community is failing to address properly.

They lobby governments, international organizations and corporations for
fairer land policies and action on climate change.
Hunger- Food Supplies
To stop people going hungry, they work to
secure global food supplies so that people always have enough to eat.

Already, almost a billion of us go to bed hungry every night. Not because there isn't enough. But because of the deep injustice in the way the food system works. We can GROW in a better way – one that contributes much more to human wellbeing.
Health, Education, Finance
Being able to access basic services such as health and education is essential to people’s well-being and to human development. They
push to secure adequate financial flows to sustain basic services for poor people.

Oxfam’s commitment to human rights
Oxfam believes that respect for human rights will help lift people out of poverty and injustice, allow them to assert their dignity and guarantee sustainable development.
They believe that everyone should have the right to:
A Livelihood-
Work at many levels with partners and communities to
support their right to a decent living.
Argue for

better working conditions
protection of natural resources
, campaign for

fairer trade rules
at the global level, and for

better policies
at the national level. Work to implement programs that lead to
self-sustaining livelihoods
, with a strong focus on women.
Basic services-
Being healthy and educated is an essential step along the route out of poverty. Yet millions of people have no access to health services, schooling or safe water. They are constantly at risk from illnesses that are easily prevented or treated, or are unable to read and write, which means exclusion from their society. They
campaign for more and better aid, with a focus on basic services.
At the program level, Oxfam
provides health training and clean water supplies, as well as funding schools and teacher training.
Be Safe From Harm-
War and natural disasters cause untold suffering for millions of people around the world and keep them locked in poverty. In disasters, people are at greater risk of violence, disease and abuse. Oxfam
saves lives in emergencies
providing shelter, clean water and sanitation
, and by working with local partners, they
help communities to rebuild and to better prepare themselves for future disasters.
Be Heard-
People living in poverty often have little influence over decisions that affect their lives. Oxfam supports partners and communities to
understand their rights
and to
speak out about their needs and concerns
, and, with others, they
get people in power to listen and act.
Be treated as equal-
People who are marginalized
– because they are women, disabled or members of a religious or ethnic minority – are more likely to be poor. They
combat such discrimination
, and work with these groups to
ensure they have the means to enjoy equal access to jobs, essential services and influence.
