Oxfam is committed to ridding the world of poverty and injustice. We have a conviction that people are capable of building a livelihood without poverty on their own, once given the chance to do so. Which is why we support local projects in developing countries, why we lobby governments and companies to take into account the interests of the poorest people, and why we campaign to involve citizens in our work. We work together with other Oxfam affiliates to increase our impact on development and humanitarian work.

Oxfam has been working in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for over five decades and over the past four decades promoting gender equality and supporting women’s right to participate and be represented in governance and decision-making structures and processes.

Oxfam’s work in the Maghreb is a multi country program comprising Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya. It focuses on social and political participation, gender justice and supporting sustainable livelihoods work. Four Oxfam affiliates work in the Maghreb: Oxfam Novib (The Netherlands), Intermon Oxfam (Spain), Oxfam Italy and Oxfam in Belgium.
