Oxfam Get Together
The Oxfam Get Together!
Here at The Wave we’re asking you to get your friends together for Oxfam on Thursday 8th March to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Do whatever you love doing – a dinner party, coffee morning or a film night. Just ask your guests to make a donation for taking part – and to help support women worldwide.
Whether you hold a Get Together with friends, colleagues or in your local community, you will help women build a better future for themselves and their families. And Oxfam will give you everything you need to make organising your event simple and a huge success - so you can just focus on catching up with your friends and raising money!
There are around 1.3 billion people living in extreme poverty worldwide; more than two-thirds of them are women and girls. Statistics like these reflect the bleak reality of life for millions of women in the developing world.
But we are dedicated to changing this. All of Oxfam’s projects have gender equality at their heart, ensuring women overcome the discrimination they face, and secure their basic rights. From enabling maternity care in Ghana to supporting women in business in Vietnam.
Here’s some famous faces telling you why you should get involved.
