Oxfam in the Philippines has been at work in the Philippines for more than 27 years and has a wide diversity of programmes and partners. You will read a lot of information about the work that we do in the country, as well as in other places where Oxfam is present, in the stories, articles and blogs we post. For more detailed information about our partners, kindly visit our Partner with Us Page. If you want to know about what Oxfam is doing in other countries, please visit the websites of the Oxfam affiliates

2. Where can I find research information on Oxfam for my studies?

From time-to-time, we receive requests from schools and students asking for help or advise on their specific researchers. However, it is a challenge for us to advise researchers due to our limited resources. However, Oxfam produces a wealth of information covering various topics on national and international issues. You can view our Annual Report for an overview of our work and activities. A list of research reports and policy papers can also be read and downloaded from our Publications Section of the website. A great deal of information can also be found at Oxfam GB's Policy and Practice Website. However, we can also response directly; send us a message through the Contact Us tab and get in touch with us.

5. How can I find out about partnership with Oxfam in the Philippines?

Partnership is at the crux of our work.  We believe that the only way we can achieve our commitment of elevating the dialogue on gender and reducing injustice often committed to those who live in the periphery of society is by working through partners – organizations that can ensure Oxfam’s works and programs are translated into meaningful action. To understand the principles that guide our work in long-term development, humanitarian responses, and campaigns and advocacy, please read our Partnership Principles document at the Partner with Us Section of the website. Please bear in mind that partnership does not entail financial support or any type of funding on the part of Oxfam. For a fuller explanation of our beliefs, strategic aims, approaches, please refer the Who We Are section of our website.
