How Oxfam Helps Fight Poverty

Oxfam works with people in more than 90 countries around the world to end the injustice of poverty and improves and save lives. They help bring food and clean water to those in need, help people in time of war, natural disasters and other crises, fight against inequality and discrimination and fight for human rights. Their vision is a just world without poverty.

This year in honor of Ramadan, we are partnering with them to help reduce poverty. The funds raised, which will be at least $10,000, but up to $20,000, will directly help empower girls in Pakistan who are at-risk of poverty by offering financial assistance, funding education, and offering career training and community building opportunities.
