What we do
Together, we’re a global movement of people working hard to tackle poverty around the globe.
Are your sports shoes made in sweatshops? Nike and other sports brands make huge profits while the people who make their products often struggle to meet their basic needs. Is this fair?
Oxfam’s ultimate vision is a just world without poverty. A world in which people can influence decisions that affect their lives, enjoy their rights and assume their responsibilities. A world in which everyone is treated equally. All our work supports this vision.
While we work to alleviate the symptoms of poverty, we also campaign to tackle the causes of it too. That’s why we’re in front of decision-makers, governments and corporations, and speak out on the big issues.
