Mode Management are proud to be a sponsor of Oxfam Australia. Oxfam are providing support to disadvantaged people around the globe. When these people have the power to claim their basic human rights, they can escape poverty – permanently. This core belief underpins Oxfam’s programs in more than 80 countries. With their partners, allies and with local communities, Oxfam helps people to claim rights for themselves.

Poverty has many complex causes, which means that there is no single, quick, or easy solution. Long-term change of the necessary scale requires more than just supporting people on the ground — it also requires political change, which is why Oxfam’s work must increase the power and self-determination of poor and disadvantaged people. Natural resources are vital for prosperity and poor people are often not getting their fair share. This situation is worsened by the impacts of climate change that the international community is failing to address properly. Oxfam lobbies governments, international organisations and corporations for fairer land policies and action on climate change.
