We want to secure the rights of people living in poverty to food and income security and decent work.
Extreme economic inequality within countries is increasing around the world. It destabilises economies, damages societies and traps people in poverty.
Our work in the UK supports our vision that everyone should have enough to live on and should be treated with respect and dignity no matter how much money they have.
Women and girls form the majority of those living in poverty. Achieving gender justice is a matter of basic rights and also a key means of addressing poverty.
Unequal power relations perpetuate and underpin poverty and need to be addressed both at the institutional level and within the complex norms and customs of each society.
Oxfam specialises in responding to emergencies and has a global reputation for speed, scale, and innovation.
We meet the need for water and sanitation in crises and campaign with others for better provision and financing of essential services.
Climate change and disasters are causes of poverty so we integrate disaster risk reduction and adaptation in our work
