Oxfam Novib

Oxfam Novib is a world-wide development organisation that mobilizes the power of people against poverty. Around the globe, we work to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive.

We do this together with over 600 partners in more than 30 countries. We develop and implement programs on the ground and link these to our influencing work on all levels. Oxfam Novib fights for a just world without poverty by:

  • defeating hunger and inequality,
  • saving lives,
  • creating opportunities for people, with a focus on women and youth.

Extreme poverty has been cut in half

In the past 15 years alone, global extreme poverty has been cut in half. Billions of people are standing up to injustice, the trauma of war, and complex problems like climate change and economic inequality. But there’s much more to be done. That’s why we exist. We tackle injustices that cause and perpetuate poverty. To make the world safer and fairer for everyone.

Case study: Changing the system, one supermarket at the time to address poverty and inequality in the global food chain, Oxfam works on both sides of the supply chain. We introduced the successful campaign ‘Behind the Barcodes’, to ensure workers’ rights are respected by supermarkets, and we support small-scale producers and workers in developing countries.
