Where we work
Why Southern Africa?
As a region prone to natural disasters, Oxfam Canada’s humanitarian relief efforts are on-going, with support to small-farmer organizations and communities to improve their resiliency and food security.
HIV/AIDS and gender are cross-cutting issues for all programs in the region.
Oxfam Canada is providing support and working with partners to increase women’s participation and leadership in promoting and defending their right to live free from violence.
We also work with local communities to strengthen their ability to advocate for their rights in the face of increased human rights abuses and the failure of many governments to live up to their commitments. Our partner organizations in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Namibia, are working hard to demand accountability and justice from their governments.
