Comparing money spent on health in Australia, Vietnam and the global average PART D: NGOs: Helping developing countries
Name of the NGO: OXFAM
The NGO addresses inequalities in the fight against poverty. List of the work and actions being made by my chosen NGO:
Secure land tenure/ownership rights
Set up village forest management groups to work with local authorities Develop sustainable forestry plans and access loans to finance them Train in community forestry management, farm planning and marketing Improve livelihoods for migrant workers in urban areas, especially migrant women; Reduce vulnerability and increase adaptability to disasters and climate change; Empower women to gain more control over their lives, increase their economic and political power, and gain more space to express their voices and claim their rights; Empower communities and civil society to take part in public policy, the social and economic development of the country, a strengthened governance (rule of law) and government accountability. One action and how successful it has been in helping those in need: OXFAM has worked with communities, the government, civil society organisations and other NGOs to promote equity, human development and economic well-being through social and economic change. Developing countries poverty rate has declined rapidly through this action. Two practical actions I can take as an individual, active citizen: I would donate money to the people that are still living in poverty so they can have a normal life and buy the things they need to survive. I would also be a supporter for any groups that support this cause and raise awareness.
