Our programme in the Philippines is strongly rights-based and founded on the recognition of the necessity for empowering people and making their voices heard in the struggle to address poverty, vulnerability and inequality. Our work shall promote active citizenship, and see that more women, young people, and the poor exercise their political right to influence decisions that affect their lives and livelihoods.

Moreover, being part of a global campaigning organization, Oxfam in the Philippines is an advocate. We support regional and global campaigns, and we also do national-level advocacy which we do  with national and local organisations, with Oxfam in a supporting role.
