Tools for activists
In keeping with Oxfam’s belief that everyone has a part to play in the fight against poverty and injustice, Oxfam Toolkits are designed for individuals and groups looking for a hands-on way to join the effort. These practical how-to guides collect ideas and advice from Oxfam’s experts as well as supporters around the country. Oxfam Toolkits represent an entry point into the world of activism—building a grassroots movement for change, one person at a time.
In 1974, Oxfam America launched its first grassroots anti-hunger campaign. Among those who joined the effort were high school and university students, whose dedication and optimism attracted others to the cause.
Nearly four decades later, students still number among Oxfam’s most committed supporters, organizing events and building networks on campus and beyond. Today’s student volunteers usually work with Oxfam in one of two ways: as participants in our national leadership program, the CHANGE Initiative, or as members of Oxfam Clubs on campuses around the country.
