About Oxfam India


What is Oxfam India?
Oxfam India works towards putting an end to poverty and injustice. For over 50 years, Oxfam has been actively partnering communities and like-minded organizations to bring in a global movement of change.

Oxfam India is India’s representation with Oxfam International, which works in over 110 countries on issues related to people living in poverty and helping them take control of their rights.

As India becomes an increasingly important global influence, Oxfam India aims to be a larger force and a stronger voice in bringing positive changes to people’s lives. It strives to build bridges between India and the rest of the world, especially on global issues such as climate change and trade. With a population of over 450 million poor people, and a growing rich and middle class who can afford to be engaged in and contribute to India’s development, Oxfam India believes it has a significant role to play by working with others to find lasting solutions to poverty and suffering.

Oxfam India makes a difference by partnering with local NGOs and working with people so that they can take control of their lives and build future for themselves, their families, and communities they live in. It believes in the dignity of people and their capacity to overcome their problems. Oxfam India and its partners work with the poorest and the most vulnerable in their struggle against poverty, suffering and injustice.

How does Oxfam India fight poverty?
Oxfam India works on a rights-based approach to address the root causes of poverty. It believes that the women and men it works with and for are key stakeholders and not victims.

Oxfam India focuses on 4 priority areas –

Economic Justice – Earning A Better Income

Oxfam India through its partners at the grassroots, works with people to give them more stable and long-term opportunities to earn a reliable
income. Oxfam campaigns for trade policies to be fair and for people to be prepared for the effects of climate change.

Gender Justice – Unlocking Women’s Potential
Oxfam India’s work on gender aims to create a shift in the perceptions,
attitudes, and behaviors of women and men. Incorporating gender issues in every aspect of its work is one of Oxfam India’s priorities.

Essential Services – The ABC Of Overcoming Poverty
Oxfam India promotes education for girl children because of the discrimination they face. Oxfam’s initiatives on education are therefore closely linked to the gender equality work. Oxfam promotes girls’ education through schools that focus on marginalized communities.

Humanitarian Work – Preparing To Survive
Oxfam India and its partners work with vulnerable communities to equip
them with the necessary skills, information, and knowledge to survive and be prepared for disasters.

Fundraising in Oxfam India – raising funds to make a shift from Poverty to Power Presently Oxfam India has more than 50, 000 individual donors across the country who believe in our mission and support our fight against poverty in India. Till date a large number of corporate houses have aligned themselves with our rights-based approach. This number is increasing day by day with more people joining hands with us.
