Oxfam America is a global organization working to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice. As one of 17 members of the international Oxfam confederation, we work with people in more than 90 countries to create lasting solutions. Oxfam saves lives, develops long-term solutions to poverty, and campaigns for social change.
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.
