About us

Oxfam is a world-wide development organisation that mobilises the power of people against poverty.

Who we are

Oxfam New Zealand's work is made possible by a network of people committed to Oxfam's vision.

How we work

No one knows better what a community needs than the people who belong to it.

Our vision: A fairer, safer and more sustainable world

We live in a rich world. Yet more than a billion people live in poverty, and the gap between rich and poor is widening. Charity as we’ve known it is not enough.

Oxfam International

Oxfam New Zealand is part of Oxfam, an international confederation working to end the injustice of poverty.


Oxfam is committed to upholding the highest ethical standards while providing a diverse and safe work environment for all of our employees. 

Environmental sustainability

We work to mitigate climate change and to help communities in developing countries reduce their climate vulnerability.
