1. BACKGROUND

Oxfam’s Mission in Zimbabwe

Oxfam’s mission in Zimbabwe is to build the capacity of individuals, communities and civil society organizations to claim their rights, increase their resilience, secure livelihoods and hold state and non- state actors accountable at all levels.

About Oxfam in Zimbabwe

Oxfam International (OI) is a global confederation of 17 Oxfam affiliates that work together as well as with partners and allies around the world to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. In 2008, OI made a strategic decision to restructure the way that Oxfam is organized in the countries where affiliates operate. This was done by moving away from a model where individual affiliates work from their own strategic plans and by introducing a new Single Management Structure (SMS) that has at its core a Joint Country Analysis (JCA) and Joint Country Strategy (JCS) which all affiliates will implement together. The SMS model combines the strengths of all affiliates to build unity of approach in all humanitarian, development, and advocacy work. By working as ‘one Oxfam’ in each country where affiliates operate, Oxfam will have greater coherence, cost-efficiency and most critically, impact.

In Zimbabwe, Oxfam has a long history of working to end poverty and injustice and has implemented a range of initiatives. Oxfam has a particular track record with regard to sustainable livelihoods and women’s rights programs, which have been supported since the late 1970s. As of 2011, three Oxfam affiliates had a presence in Zimbabwe (Oxfam Novib, Oxfam Canada and Oxfam Great Britain). Three other affiliates (Oxfam Australia, Oxfam Germany and Oxfam Ireland) were contributing funds.

Besides the Securing Rights program, the Oxfam in Zimbabwe country program is made up of 6 other programs which are depicted in the diagram below.
