Oxfam New Zealand part of a global organisation dedicated to achieving real and lasting change for people living in poverty. In a world rich in resources, we believe that poverty is an injustice that can be overcome.
Working with people caught in extreme poverty in many overseas regions (especially the Pacific and Asia), we provide practical support with essentials like safe water, a sustainable livelihood, basic education and a reliable food supply.
And when natural disasters or conflicts strike, Oxfam is there, not only to save lives but to help communities recover.
We also address the root causes of poverty by advocating and campaigning for change to unjust policies that keep communities in poverty. Climate change is one of the root causes of poverty and we advocate for climate financing and funding for adaptation measures, as well as for fair, ambitious and binding international emissions reduction targets.
