Fighting Poverty Now
Before We Lose Ground
In the past twenty years, the number of people living in extreme poverty has been cut in half. That’s because global citizens like you are coming together to create change with those who need it most.
And yet, while there has been some very important progress, Oxfam's latest research shows that the richest 1% will soon have more wealth than the rest of humanity combined.
The surge in inequality threatens to reverse hard won gains in the fight against poverty - at a time when 1 in 9 people do not have enough to eat!
Ending Global Poverty Begins With Women's Rights
The majority of those living in extreme poverty are women and girls. We know that ending global poverty begins with women's rights.
Last year, the Live Below the Line challenge raised more than $150,000 for development charities in Canada, resources aimed directly at lifting communities out of poverty.
By living below the line and supporting Oxfam Canada, you will make a real contribution to our work with women and girls around the world in the vital journey out of poverty.
