Our vision, values & goals

We believe that poverty is unjustifiable and preventable, that the present state of inequality and injustice must be challenged, and that with the right help, poor people can change their lives for the better.

Our vision

Oxfam’s vision is a just world without poverty. We envisage a world in which people can influence decisions that affect their lives, enjoy their rights, and assume their responsibilities—a  world in which everyone is valued and treated equally.

Our purpose

Oxfam strives to help create lasting solutions to the injustice of poverty. We are part of a global movement for change, one that empowers people to create a future that is secure, just, and free from poverty.

Our goals

We have one main goal: to bring about positive change in the lives of people living in poverty.

To achieve this goal, we have established our central commitments and twelve goals that are outlined in our2014 —2019 Strategic Plan.

To achieve our commitment to reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians, we’ve developed a detailed Reconciliation Action Plan in consultation with Reconciliation Australia and our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ Program staff.
