Oxfam’s Student Community


September 2019.

Oxfam Australia produces a range of term projects, aligned with issues of global importance and national days of action.

These DIY projects are designed to be student-led, action-based and scalable to suit your school and context. Get inspired to take individual and collective action in your school!

Please note: all of these events can be hosted throughout the school year, however many of them have a ‘key moment’. If you are able to host the event then, it will have the most collective impact. Contact us for more details.

Host a National Close the Gap Day event in support of Indigenous health equality (Key moment: March)

Create and run your own fundraiser for Oxfam and help tackle poverty together!
(Key moment: All year round)
