Birthday gifts

Celebrating birthdays are exciting, but the impact that a Women’s Rights Gift can have on changing democratic processes and societal structures could perhaps be the most exciting celebration imaginable. A Women’s Rights Gift helps women in countries like Pakistan learn about the democratic process so they can influence political parties to become more gender inclusive. Women are encouraged to vote and given training and support to stand as candidates themselves, so they can make changes that will last for generations. This is a very special gift for a very special woman.

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 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 Fiji, our ‘Shifting Power, Shifting Voice’ project supports the economic empowerment of women and people in sexual and gender minority communities.
  • In Pakistan, we are empowering women to become leaders and to gain equal participation in political processes.
  • In Papua New Guinea, we are striving to end violence against women and girls, including sorcery-related violence.
  • 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.
  • In Zimbabwe, we’re empowering women and girls to uphold their sexual and reproductive health rights.
