The Future is Equal
Every society is transformed by powerful ideas that are driven by consistent action. At Oxfam, we dream of a world where everyone has equal rights and opportunities that provides everyone a chance to thrive, and not just to survive. Oxfam tirelessly works across the globe in 68 countries, together with millions of people, to save and improve their lives.
In Nepal, Oxfam has been working since 1980, partnering with local NGOs, and working with local government, local groups and community members.
Oxfam’s vision for Nepal is a just society without poverty, in which all women and men live a life of dignity, enjoy their rights, and assume their responsibilities as active citizens of Nepal. Oxfam works in three thematic areas which are Water Governance, Gender and Social Justice, and Resilience and Climate Justice.
Oxfam’s Water Governance programme works to achieve sustainable solution to community wa-ter management. The objective of Water Gov-ernance programme is to enable Communities in Nepal to have strong governance of water and capacity to address environmental manage-ment and climate emergency.
Similarly, the objective of the Gender Justice programme is to reduce Violence Against Wom-en and Girls and Child, Early and Forced Mar-riage, and create an enabling environment for women and girls to have free choice, equal op-portunity and to be in leadership decision-making position across different sectors.
Likewise, the Resilience and Climate Justice Program works to strengthen communities and institutions’ capacity to cope with disasters, improve their livelihoods, and build resilience. The objective of the programme is to enable young men and women from poor, marginalized and excluded groups, both in urban and rural areas, to have resilient livelihoods, income, and food security.
Oxfam will seek integration and syner-gies across different thematic areas and will work in poor communities, with a focus on socially and economi-cally disadvantaged people
