Join with Oxfam to help women in Ghana escape from poverty


What’s happening?

Gender inequality in Ghana traps women in poverty. It’s an age-old story. But with your support, it’s a story that we can change. Oxfam are working with women in Ghana to help them make a living and break down the barriers that keep them in poverty. By donating today, you can give women and girls in Ghana a fair chance to build a brighter future.

In rural Ghana where Beatrice lives, incomes depend on agriculture. But because farming is viewed as men’s work, she and millions of other women are excluded from income-generating activities like raising livestock and growing crops. Instead, Beatrice makes money by gathering and breaking rocks to sell as gravel. It’s backbreaking work. And it’s never enough. “Because I have no regular work, I can’t afford food,” she says.

Oxfam’s efforts

Oxfam are a global movement of people working hard to fight poverty and injustice. One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is determined to change that world by mobilising the power of people against poverty. Oxfam’s ultimate vision is a just world without poverty. A world in which people can influence decisions that affect their lives, enjoy their rights and assume their responsibilities. A world in which everyone is treated equally. They work with partners and communities to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. Oxfam sees a future in which no one lives in poverty. Join their movement for change and help people help themselves in the fight against poverty.

Supporting Oxfam

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care agency providing services in Sydney, including the greater metropolitan areas, Central Coast and parts of the Hunter region of NSW, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in NSW, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families. PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

We are always interested in hearing from those passionate about making a meaningful difference for a child in foster care or a family requiring assistance.

How you can help
