What Oxfam is all about
Vision: A just world without poverty.
Mission: To build lasting solutions to poverty and injustice with a focus on women’s rights.
The challenge: “Be part of building a positive future now. A future where women and girls are free from the injustice of poverty.”
When women’s rights are respected…
…women are healthier, better educated, and better paid.
“One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is determined to change that world by mobilizing the power of people against poverty.”
This charity works to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. They save lives and help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes. Furthermore, they campaign so that the voices of the poor influence the local and global decisions that affect them.
It takes muscle
Empowering women is a community effort. Equality requires education. It requires protection. For this reason, laws must be changed and health tended to.
Your ideas and creativity help. Here at home. Around the world.
Participate in having a conversation. Let’s expand our understanding. What are the issues Canadian women face? What does it mean to be poor in Canada? Notice attitudes and beliefs about gender roles.
Pay attention to the policies and procedures of your own company. What’s happening at your children’s school? Or at the neighborhood pub? Are the women in your life safe?
Similarly, let’s reach beyond our neighbhorhoods and our own country. For instance, educate yourself on women’s issues around the world. Talking about what we learn is an active step in the right direction. As go the roots, so goes the tree. Dip your own roots deep into understanding. After that, allow that knowing to spread, and watch attitudes shift. As attitudes adjust, beliefs change. Policies and laws change as a result.
