Field Enumerators – OXFAM

OXFAM is a development, humanitarian and campaigning international confederation of 17 organizations that works in over 90 countries to find lasting solutions to poverty, inequality, and injustice. Oxfam was established in Rwanda in 1980, although prior to that had funded the work within the country. We have been always inspired and driven by the potential that is inherent in all Rwandan people; the potential not only to survive tragic history but to thrive and achieve impressive growth and stability. Oxfam is not an implementing organization, rather it works through partners.

In Rwanda, OXFAM’s vision is just Rwanda without poverty. Our mission is to ensure that women, youth and men enjoy equal rights and benefit from fair and inclusive development. We work to ensure that poor people, especially women, are empowered, participate economically and politically, are free from discrimination and violence, they can improve their lives and have a say in decisions that affect them. We stand for women’s economic empowerment and transformational leadership. In certain instances, we focus specifically on men as agents of positive change in gender relations. We work to ensure that girls and women gain direct access to, and control over economic assets.

In 2017, Oxfam in Rwanda has successfully been awarded a four year and half grant funding from the Scottish Government through the Scottish Government Development Programmes for a project titled “Claiming Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (CSRHR)in Rwanda” aimed at increasing awareness for positive change in social attitudes, cultural norms that discriminate against women in targeted communities, building the capacities of health care providers at Isange One-Stop Centers for high-quality services and empowering victims of sexual and gender-based violence for reduction of GBV incidence.
