With your support, Oxfam New Zealand has delivered tangible benefits to many thousands of people this year. People are growing more food, educating their children, enjoying better health, drinking safe water, and earning a decent living. And they better understand their rights. More people are empowered to have a voice in decisions that affect them.
A key to this success has been the strong and respectful relationships that have been built with people and local groups in the poorest areas of our neighbourhood – Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Samoa, East Timor and Indonesia. Our approach is to understand local needs, identify those local groups who are doing good work and support them for the long term. We help them to develop and strengthen as organisations, so they can reach more people, deliver real benefits, and achieve lasting change.
We are also pleased to say that the organisation is in sound financial condition and income has continued to grow by 8 percent over the past year. Oxfam manages to do a huge amount with a relatively small budget and we would like to express appreciation for the passion and commitment of our staff, volunteers and interns. But none of this would have been possible without the generous donations by Oxfam’s supporters and their engagement in events, campaigns and public awareness-raising.
