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.

We've been working with communities for more than 70 years, and have learnt that simply giving handouts is not the answer. Instead, we provide people with the skills, knowledge and resources to help them create their own solutions to poverty.

Poverty isn’t just about lack of resources. We urge governments and companies to change rules and practices that keep people in poverty, and we support communities to call for justice and take action.

How does money raised at your Morning Tea help?

$70 can provide lifesaving supplies to a family affected by a natural disaster.

$320 can help cover the cost of one year’s training in life-changing farming methods that can dramatically increase the amount of rice people are able to grow.

$700 can help a farmer in East Timor bring their coffee to the warehouse and all the way to market, securing their livelihood.
