    Oxfam Novib is an international non profit organization committed to ridding the world of poverty. We have a conviction that once given the chance to do so people are well capable of building a livelihood without poverty on their own. To do this, we work with local organizations, build their capacity and provide strategic funding to local projects in developing countries. We also lobby governments and companies to take into account the interests of the poorest people, and campaign to involve men and women also in our work.
