Who we are

Oxfam in Myanmar staff making the word OXFAM together.

Oxfam is a confederation of 19 affiliates  working in over 90 countries around the world. Our collective vision is “A Just World without Poverty”. We believe that people should be able to influence decisions that affect their lives, enjoy their rights, and assume their responsibilities as full citizens in a world in which all human beings are treated and valued equally. We focus on strengthening women’s rights and leadership in all that we do. Oxfam is one of the world’s leading humanitarian and development agencies.

In Myanmar, our goal is to contribute to the reduction of poverty and inequality, to promote the collective power of men and women to harness the benefits of political reforms and economic development, and to foster the resilience and long term security of communities affected by conflict and disasters. The rights of women are at the heart of our work.

To achieve our goals, the Oxfam Country strategy focuses on three thematic areas of work: Governance and Social Accountability, Economic Justice, and Humanitarian. Gender Equality is a core element in all programs, ensuring that we put women at the centre of everything we do.
