Oxfam works closely our partner, Women in Business Development (WIBDI), to improve Samoans’ livelihoods.
Established in 1991, WIBDI is a small NGO that believes a Samoan model of development must take into account Samoan values, culture and tradition. They work in 150 rural villages across Samoa, supporting a range of community-based projects aimed at alleviating poverty, creating sustainable village economies and revitalising the agricultural sector.
Our livehoods work with WIBDI focuses on:
- Bringing organic dried bananas to the New Zealand market
