We are a confederation of 19 Oxfam organisations working together in more than 90 countries. Oxfam works with partner organisations and alongside vulnerable women and men to end injustices.

Oxfam in Vietnam is working to seek transformative changes in policies, practices and beliefs in ways that will fundamentally improve the lives of poor and marginalised women and men and ensure that all citizens have the same opportunity to enjoy their rights.

Program Overview: Oxfam works with others to find lasting solutions to poverty and suffering. Through private sector engagement and market-based solutions, we are working to enhance the poor’s market access and women’s economic leadership, contributing to income increase and sustainable livelihoods as well as to mobilize resources and influence private sector for the fight against poverty and injustice.
