Über uns Oxfam America & Global Citizen

In a world as rich as ours, many of us go hungry or don’t have clean water. Many of us can’t claim our human rights. That’s wrong. The way we see it, poverty is solvable—a problem rooted in injustice. Eliminate injustice and you can eliminate poverty. It won’t be quick or easy, but it can be done. That’s why we stand together against injustice. We recognize our responsibility to hold the powerful accountable. We see people’s power to change their lives. Together, we aim to do what’s right.
