Oxfam is an international development organisation with a vision of a just world without poverty. We believe a fairer world is possible in which people will have control over their lives and livelihoods, their voices are heard, and their rights upheld. We work directly with communities and with local partner organisations and seek to influence policy makers on issues which have a direct bearing on people’s lives. We strive to achieve our mission through long-term development programs, humanitarian response, campaigns, policy research and advocacy.

Oxfam in the Pacific (OiP) has a regional strategy that is focused on achieving change in three thematic areas: Climate Justice, Economic Justice and Gender & Citizen Justice. Our approach is rooted in collective action and local leadership. We seek to build strong networks, mutual understanding, and collectively lift our capacity to enable collaboration, influencing and accountability. Our work is guided by Oxfam’s global values and by Pacific values and culture including: openness, flexibility, respect, equity, justice, solidarity, collaboration, sharing and humility.

The ‘Tugeta Yumi Stanap Strong” (TYSS) (Together We are Strong) sits within OiP’s Gender & Citizen Justice (GCJ) Pillar and is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs’ (DFAT) Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). The five-year programme works across four key areas:

  1. Civil Society – aiming to strengthen local civil society organisations (CSOs) run by and representing diverse and marginalised people for increased autonomy and sustainability and to increase their voice and agency within larger systems and Networks in Vanuatu.
  2. Collective Action – aiming to increase the autonomy, diversity, and gender responsiveness of civil society networks in Vanuatu – ensuring that as well as planning advocacy initiatives based on the needs of their constituent groups, they are prioritising and strategizing together to increase the impact and success of collective action on key issues affecting the lives of women and marginalised groups.
  3. Institutions – aiming to raise the consciousness of key leadership groups and institutions within formal and informal governance institutions in Vanuatu, focusing on shifting norms and attitudes regarding gender equality and the importance of diversity in decision making.
  4. Knowledge – ensuring Oxfam, its partner organizations and allies have access to data, wisdom, and evidence to shift attitudes, build skills and understand and influence how change happens.
