Promoting Self Reliance

Oxfam's long- term support and life changing work enables people to escape poverty; their work is about promoting self-reliance rather than dependency. Too often, poor people have no way to make a decent living. So they help farmers, workers and business owners with everything from building cooperatives, to training, to funding equipment that helps their business grow. And when they support a fairer, better, more exciting business, everyone in the community feels the benefit.
