  1. Extreme inequality and poverty

    Everyone should be able to earn enough to provide for their family, save for the future, and have a fair chance to get ahead. But many hardworking people struggle just to make ends meet, and don’t have opportunities to succeed.

  2. Making aid work

    We can't afford to let Congress cut lifesaving foreign assistance - it's working. But sixty years of foreign aid also show that international donors alone cannot fix the problems of developing countries.

  3. Natural resources and rights

    Many poor countries face a resource curse: They should be rich, but because they rely heavily on resources like oil and gold, they suffer from poverty, corruption, social unrest, and human rights violations.

  4. Food, farming, and hunger

    Fighting hunger means, first and foremost, making sure that people can access the food they need. But Oxfam’s GROW campaign also aims to address the root causes of hunger by bringing people together to challenge injustice.

  5. Why we campaign

    Together we can change the laws and practices that keep people trapped in poverty. Help raise awareness and inspire action on some of the world's most urgent issues.
