Oxfam is a global movement of people who won’t live with the injustice of poverty. Together we save and rebuild lives in disasters. We help people build better lives for themselves. We speak out on the big issues that keep people poor, like inequality, discrimination against women and climate change. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can live without poverty.

All our work is led by three core values: 
  • Empowerment. Everyone, from our staff and supporters to people living in poverty, should feel they can make change happen.
  • Accountability. We take responsibility for our actions and hold ourselves accountable. We believe that others should also be held accountable for their actions.
  • Inclusiveness. We are open to everyone and embrace diversity. We believe everyone has a contribution to make, regardless of visible and invisible differences.
