Jamesons Strata supports Oxfam

Oxfam

oxfam

Oxfam have been fighting poverty and injustice for more than 50 years. But what exactly does this mean?

Contributing to long-term development

Poor people can take control, solve their own problems, and rely on themselves – with the right support. They fund long-term projects around the world and work in a range of areas, from water and sanitation to education and health, to bring about positive change in people’s lives.

Campaigning for change

Poverty isn’t just about lack of resources. In a wealthy world it’s about bad decisions made by powerful people.

They form part of a global movement of people committed to achieving a fairer world by:

  • Partnering with Australians to campaign on the issues that matter – more than 50,000 Australians took action with us in the 2010/2011 financial year
  • Empowering communities in developing countries to realise their rights and improve their lives
  • Engaging with organisations and governments to change policies that cause poverty and inequality

Responding to emergencies

People need help in an emergency – fast. Oxfam saves lives, swiftly delivering aid, support and protection; and we help people prepare for future crises. Right now, they’re responding to these emergencies around the world.

All of their work seeks one overall outcome: to bring about positive change in the lives of people living in poverty. it’s an incredible mission statement that inspires the people at Jamesons, if you’d like to find a way to support them too, take a look.
