If you’re reading this, you’re probably considering working with Oxfam to help tackle poverty together. Thank you!

At Oxfam Australia, we love working with people — teachers, students and school communities — who are passionate about making a difference and taking action to change minds, systems and lives.

We want your time taking action with Oxfam to be as meaningful, successful and fun as possible. So we’ve developed some new student and teacher fundraising guides. They’re our one-stop-shop for fundraising with maximum impact!

These guides will help you involve everyone, make sure everyone understands why they’re raising money and where it goes, and explore educational best practice.
