Oxfam is committed to ridding the world of poverty. We have a conviction that people are well capable of building a livelihood without poverty on their own, once given the chance to do so. Which is why we support local projects in developing countries, why we lobby governments and companies to take into account the interests of the poorest people, and why we campaign to involve the public also in our work. Within the Oxfam confederation we work together as 19 Oxfam affiliates, with the final aim to end the injustice of poverty.
