Together we can provide long-term solutions for communities in need.
Working with our local partners, we’re active in more than 90 countries as part of the Oxfam International confederation. Our work tackles the root causes of poverty and we respond to emergencies to save lives and help communities to rebuild.
Oxfam Aotearoa’s work focuses on the Pacific countries of Tonga, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Tuvalu, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste, as well as Bangladesh in South Asia. Discover more about our programs below.
Our latest program
Kōtui is a five-year programme spanning four countries in the wider Pacific region. It is a Negotiated Partnership between Oxfam Aotearoa and the New Zealand Aid Programme.
The purpose of the Kōtui programme is to increase the resilience, well-being and agency of women in the face of climate breakdown and disasters. The Kōtui programme will focus particularly on the lives of those women facing compounding marginalisation – such as disability, single parenthood, widowhood, or remoteness – in the wider Pacific region.
We anticipate that the programme will engage directly with 37,600 people, and benefit a further 200,000 people through policy change. The programme is therefore expected to reach a total of 238,000 people across Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea.
