Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.

That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together we save, protect and rebuild lives. When disaster strikes, we help people build better lives for themselves, and for others. We take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty.

We are an international confederation of 19 organizations (affiliates) working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.

Oxfam West Africa has been working to promote good governance and active citizenship, support vulnerable populations that have been victims of disasters and conflicts, and contribute to strengthening their food security. Our vision of change is a fair West Africa Region without poverty, where all citizens (men, women and youth) have the power and means to exercise their fundamental human rights and have control over their lives. All our interventions are supported by influencing work, actions to promote gender justice, and the development of strategic partnerships with local and international organizations.

All our work is led by three core values: Empowerment, Accountability, Inclusiveness. To read more about our values please click here
