Did you know that one person in three in the World lives in poverty?

This is a current fact of our society and the main reason for Oxfam to exist.

The 17 organizations that are part of Oxfam work together to try to change the World by mobilizing the power of people against poverty. The initial concern of Oxfam, when it was founded in Oxford in 1942, was the provision of food to relieve famine.
That initial concern has become within 72 years in developed strategies to combat the causes of famine. Nowadays, Oxfam doesn’t provide just food, but medicines and, the most important thing, tools to enable people to become self-supporting and, in addition, to enable poorest regions the way to be part of fairer and more equal markets.

Basically, Oxfam’s ultimate goal is to enable people to exercise their rights and manage their lives. They try to dignify the World and prioritize human beings over money and markets. That means that Oxfam’s tasks are planned to ensure the rights to a sustainable livelihood, to basic social services, to life and security, to be heard and to have an identity.

To reach that goal, Oxfam’s program has three main points of focus: Development work which lifts communities out of poverty with long-term, sustainable solutions based on their needs; humanitarian work, assisting those immediately affected by conflict and natural disasters; and lobbyist, advocacy and popular campaigning, trying to affect policy decisions on the causes of conflict at local, national, and international levels.
