Our Goal, Mission & vision

secure and prosperous Nigeria

We will work to achieve our mission as an advocate, and enabler and networker of others, by mobilising public opinion and through the delivery of our programmes with our partners.

Our Goal

Our purpose is to help create lasting solutions to the injustice of poverty. We are part of a global movement for change, empowering people to create a future that is secure, just, and free from poverty.

Our Mission

Adopting a rights-based approach and in solidarity with communities of women, men and youth living in poverty, and neglected by current power structures, the mission of Oxfam in Nigeria for this plan period is:

  • To work with partners, public and private sector institutions to achieve a fairer economy with increases in incomes for the poorest and more effective support to those affected by crisis; and
  • To change public attitudes so the rights of women are respected and to achieve more accountable state and private sector institutions and a stronger civil society, in which women and men know and can claim their rights.

We will work to achieve our mission as an advocate, and enabler and networker of others, by mobilising public opinion and through the delivery of our programmes with our partners.

Our Vision

Our vision is of a secure and prosperous Nigeria, where the benefits from economic growth are shared so the basic needs of all people are met; where the rights of women are respected; where all people, especially the youth, can participate in decision making and influence the policies that impact on their lives; and where public and private sector institutions are accountable and transparent.
