Making a difference

Oxfam exists for a very simple reason – because poverty and injustice are unacceptable.

We believe in the power of people to change the world. That’s why we motivate and support members of the New Zealand public to take action towards a fairer, safer, more sustainable world.

Oxfam’s Morning Tea is your chance to make a difference.

Oxfam works to address the root causes of poverty and we’re challenging the unjust policies and practices that reinforce poverty. We believe trade has the potential to lift millions of the world’s poorest people out of poverty – but only if it’s fair.

Promoting fair trade is just one of the ways we’re helping growers get a better deal from trade. We also work directly with struggling growers, helping them access the skills and tools they need to earn a better income and work their way out of poverty.

"Join us and put the jug on! We’re supporting Oxfam’s Morning Tea because Oxfam programmes support fair trade which enables small scale farmers in developing countries to work their way out of poverty by giving them a fair price for their products, better working conditions and the ability to improve quality of life in their communities. Together we can help change lives for the better – join us!"  — Nadia Lim
