We are committed to contributing to collective understanding and improved practice in community-based work and humanitarian action
We seek to listen and learn as we go, regularly adapting what we do to ensure it is grounded in evidence and the voices of people who may be less heard, have historically been excluded, or have varied perspectives.
We capture, synthesize, and communicate evidence, discussions, voices, literature and more for practitioners within our own organisation, for partners and for others who are seeking to develop understanding and improve what they do. Our goal is that this knowledge is continually updated and adapted to each context.
As an intersectional feminist ally, Oxfam believes in ending sexism and that women should be free of political, social, and economic oppression and exploitation. In support of this aim, our work will be guided by 11 principles.Go to principles
