Oxfam believes that gender inequality is a major barrier to ending poverty and a major form of discrimination against women. This is the reason for keeping the actualization and protection of women’s human rights at the heart of all our work.
Core Pillars Oxfam is driven by a vision for a Nigeria without inequality and poverty, and where every voice counts.
This program seeks to ensure that the socio-economic and political rights of Nigerians are guaranteed by working with citizens, relevant institutions and the private sector to promote transparency and accountability.
