A just world without poverty
We want a world where people are valued and treated equally, enjoy their rights as full citizens, and can influence decisions affecting their lives.
In fifteen years, global extreme poverty has been cut in half. Billions of people are standing up to injustice, the trauma of war, and complex problems like climate change and economic inequality. But there is much more to be done. That is why Oxfam Novib exists: to tackle the injustices that cause and perpetuate poverty. We work to make the world safer and fairer for everyone. We exist to defeat poverty.
Call me an optimist....
but I feel that the momentum for change is definitely growing. It is our mission to strengthen this call for action and to unite forces globally. We do not want to live in a world with poverty, inequality and injustice. Thanks to our partners, donors, those who make donations and everyone who supports us, we will continue to do our best for a better world. Michiel Servaes, Executive Director Oxfam Novib
Most Nigerians are extremely poor...
... still the government wants them to pay for the tax incentives it grants to mining, oil and telecom companies. That is what we protested against – and were arrested for. Ending up in jail did not stop us: we are more determined than ever to continue our fight for social and fiscal justice in Niger. Ali Idrissa, manager of Oxfam partner ROTAB
Oxfam Novib is tremendously grateful to our donors and partners for working with us to fight poverty and injustice.
