Oxfam in the Philippines Annual Report 2018

Husband and wife, Romulo and Pastora Samson, do laundry together at a local river and public laundry site in Barangay Santo Nino, Quinapondan, Eastern Samar. Access to water is a challenge in the fishing community. The river is their main source of water and requires several trips for water collection and laundry. Romulo and Pastora share laundry and household tasks, especially when Romulo is not fishing out at sea. (Photo: Aurelie Marrier d’Unienville/Oxfam)

Last year was a significant year for Oxfam in the Philippines as we focused our efforts on strengthening our partnerships through the launch of our new Strategic Partnership Model. This new model affirms the belief that development can only be genuinely and sustainably achieved through deep and robust partnerships with a diverse array of development actors. Such an affirmation goes beyond our desire to be more effective and impactful. It also has profound implications on our organizational culture and behaviors we wish to manifest – that of listening, humility, and accountability. The journey of the past year would not have been possible without our partners and supporters. This annual report is a compilation of our wins and learnings, as we look forward to another year of working together with even more resoluteness and courage.
