Oxfam is a global organization working to end the injustice of poverty. We help people build better futures for themselves by working with partners to support long-term solutions that help poor communities grow nutritious food, access land and clean water, and secure decent work and good wages. We hold the powerful accountable by using advocacy to tackle the systems, policies, and practices that keep people trapped in poverty.
We save lives in disasters by working with local people to lead humanitarian responses that provide immediate relief, and build resilience against future threats. Oxfam has been working in South Sudan for over thirty years. We currently provide humanitarian aid in the wake of the country’s civil war.
Oxfam is pushing for marginalized communities to have more control over their natural resources and a bigger voice in ending local and national conflicts.
In South Sudan, where years of conflict and poverty has forced families to marry off young daughters in order to survive, Oxfam worked with young women in Nyal, South Sudan to document their challenges, hopes, and dreams for the future looking through the lens of a camera.
