Who we are
We are Oxfam in Asia. We won't live with poverty.
Here in Asia, Oxfam helps create lasting solutions that empower people to create a future that is secure, just, and free from poverty.
Oxfam is a global movement of millions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty is not inevitable. Our vision is a just world without poverty. We want a world where people enjoy their rights as full citizens; where every woman and man is empowered, valued and treated equally; where individuals can influence decisions affecting their lives.
When disaster strikes, Oxfam's priority is to start saving lives, then to help people come back stronger.
Oxfam makes sure that people are able to have decent sanitation and can get clean water to drink. We provide help for people to get food and other essentials they need to survive, and ensure that the most vulnerable are kept safe from harm. We support them in being better prepared to cope with shocks and uncertainties. We help rebuild communities to come back stronger from disaster, and to face the future on their own terms.
Today, Oxfam works in 17 countries here in Asia. See where we work
