    Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.

    That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together we save, protect and rebuild lives. When disaster strikes, we help people build better lives for themselves, and for others.

    We take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty.

    We are an international confederation of 19 organizations (affiliates) working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.

    Background

    The Horn, East & Central Africa Region (HECA) is one of the poorest and least developed regions of the world, and one of the largest regions where Oxfam works.

    All ten countries in the region were Oxfam works are currently affected by natural and/or man-made humanitarian crises, and this is having an impact on Oxfam’s role in the Region.

    In addition to country specific Oxfam strategies in each of the 10 countries for the period 2015-2019, Oxfam also has a statement of strategic intent for the region, reflecting the key strategic priorities and objectives for the entire region.

    They include prevention and response to humanitarian crises; enabling women in HECA to claim their social, economic and political rights; supporting the development of civil society, and the improvement of accountable, democratic governance; and supporting the improved resilience of those with vulnerable livelihoods to climate change, insecurity and other risks.
