Can you imagine a world without poverty? Here at Oxfam, that’s our goal.
It’s amazing what we can achieve when we come together. We find and deliver smart, sustainable solutions for the many causes and symptoms of poverty. It’s a tough gig – but vitally important. And we couldn’t do this life-saving work without the support from people like you.
Here are six ways that you are helping to tackle poverty around the world.
Providing clean water
Dirty water and poor hygiene kill more people than war each year.
Together, we can deliver clean water and santitation to communities that need it most, to save lives and prevent the spread of disease.
Globally, 1 in 9 people go to bed hungry each day.
Together, we can alleviate hunger by empowering small-scale farmers to access land, grow more food, and connect with markets.
Empowering women and girls
Worldwide, violence, exploitation and illiteracy keep women poor and limit their participation in society.
With your help, together we can create opportunities for women and girls to thrive.
When disaster strikes, Oxfam responds with vital essentials to help people survive.
And before crises happen, we work proactively with vulnerable communities to minimise the damage caused by climate change and natural hazards.
Giving people a voice
With your support, Oxfam helps people speak up for their rights.
Together, we empower the communities most affected by poverty, such as women, small-scale farmers, Indigenous peoples and minority groups.
Looking out for our lot
In Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are more likely to be affected by poverty.
We work with Indigenous-led organisations to Close the Gap and make sure their voices are heard.
The Melbourne International Comedy Festival has partnered with Oxfam Australia for more than 20 years to help to provide long-term change — helping people grow more food, educate their children, and lead healthy, productive lives.
