How will your gift support women?

In many parts of the world, people are marginalised on the basis of their gender identity and expression, as well as their sexual orientation or sex characteristics. Oxfam works to provide these minority communities with the opportunity to participate more equally in the world around them. Often this is by working in male-dominated communities, where women are denied their rights and disadvantaged as a result. The following programs show how your gift will go towards supporting women and giving them the skills they need to lift themselves out of poverty and into empowerment.

  • In Solomon Islands, we are motivating men and boys to reject family violence and adopt healthy attitudes and behaviour toward women and girls.
  • In Vanuatu, we are creating opportunities for women, people with disabilities, young people and sexual and gender minority communities to earn a living.
