Nº REQ: 17/099/OPTI-GAZA

Oxfam is a registered International Non-Governmental Organization. It is a member of Oxfam International, an international confederation of 17 organizations working together in 98 countries with partners and other allies around the world.

Oxfam focuses its activities on providing a comprehensive response to poverty, working cohesively in the four areas that constitute its identity: development cooperation, humanitarian action, faire trade, social mobilization, campaigns and education for global citizenship.

Through the Oxfam Country Strategy (OCS) in OPTI, Oxfam works to increase our impact on development and humanitarian work in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel (OPTI) focusing on three change goals: Gender Justice (GJ), Economic Justice (EJ) and Saving lives Now and In the Future (SL). Together with Right to Be Heard (RTBH), Gender justice is also mainstreamed throughout the Oxfam OPTI Country Strategy, addressing the double layer of inequality and violence Palestinian women face, i.e. occupation and patriarchy. The OCS guides Oxfam’s collective work in the OPTI from 2016-2019 which will be used to focus resources, campaigns and programs over the course of four years to meet our strategic goal and change objectives.
