Oxfam is an international confederation of 18 organizations networked together in more than 90 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty. The Oxfam International Secretariat is based in Oxford, UK. Oxfam has been working in Nepal since the early 1980s undertaking various development initiatives addressing the poverty and injustice faced by the population, especially women and other socially and economically excluded groups. The level of Oxfam’s engagement increased substantially after restoration of democracy in 1990 as it became easier for civil society to work in the new political environment. Over the years, under its Sustainable Development Programme, Oxfam has worked in partnership with local civil society organisations and the government authorities and services to promote rural livelihoods, and vulnerable communities’ resilience to climatic shocks and disasters. It has also significantly contributed to empowering community people, especially women, to negotiate with people in power, influence decision making processes, claim rights and essential services to which they are entitled, demand accountability on the part of duty bearers and engage larger masses in advocacy efforts. Oxfam’s central office is in Kathmandu. Since the series of devastating earthquakes and aftershocks hit Nepal in 2015, Oxfam under its Humanitarian Programme set up new offices in Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot, and Sindhupalchowk to help deliver emergency relief to affected communities and help them in their recovery.
