The World's Story is Yours to Tell
A doctor when you need one. Going to school. Medicines you can afford. Not much to ask, you might think. Yet millions of people are going without these basic things, every single day. And the price? Preventable illness, early death, and generations unable to read a book or sign their name.
Oxfam is an international confederation of 14 organizations working together in 99 countries and with partners and allies around the world to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice.
We believe that good healthcare and basic schooling are rights, not luxuries. Yet more than 72 million children in the developing world don't go to school, and millions of people get low quality health care, or are forced to go without it altogether.
CALL TO ACTION:Tell us why health
and education matter!
Health and education are critical for beating global poverty. Oxfam is working hard to get basic healthcare and basic education for all who need it, and you can help! On 10/10/10, Oxfam asks you to reflect on the issues of health and education in your own life and identify why these are your and EVERYONE'S fundamental rights.
