Oxfam...What springs to mind? Charity shops and second-hand clothes? Donkeys from our Oxfam Unwrapped gift catalogue, bought for people in far-flung lands? They're part of the picture. But think bigger. Much bigger. Big enough for 99 per cent of the great British public to have heard of us.Human first. Amazing Second.Oxfam is a vibrant global movement of dedicated people fighting poverty. Together. People power drives everything we do. From saving lives and developing projects that put poor people in charge of their lives and livelihoods, to campaigning for change that lasts. That's Oxfam in action.Oxfam fights poverty in three ways:Campaigning for Change Poverty isn't just about lack of resources. In a wealthy world it's about bad decisions made by powerful people.
