Oxfam South Africa (OZA) is a social justice organisation working at the intersection of poverty and inequality. We are driven by the belief that South Africa has the potential to become a fair and just society and to stand for the same in the world. Established in 2014, OZA is the first autonomous member of Oxfam International (OI) in Africa. Our current programming focuses on South Africa and we connect continentally and globally. Oxfam International is a network of 20 Affiliates who together work in more than 90 countries across the world to end poverty and injustice. In South Africa, OZA builds on more than 3 decades of contribution to social justice by various Oxfam Affiliates who worked in this country as far back as the 60’s.
