One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is a world­ wide development organization that mobilizes the power of people against po verty. Around the globe, Oxfam works to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. We save lives and help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes.

In all we do, Oxfam works with partner organizations and alongside vulnerable women and men to end the injustices that cause poverty.

Important values of the organization include gender­ sensitivity, acting nonviolence, community building and innovation.

Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice

The Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice is an international women’s human rights organization that advocates for gender justice through the International Criminal Court (ICC) and through domes tic mechanisms, including peace negotiations and justice processes. We work with women most affected by the conflict situations under investigation by the ICC.
