  • Female Food Heroes is a project that aims to draw attention to the vital role played by small scale female food producers around the world. It's running in around 18 countries at the moment from Tanzania to Armenia, Canada to Russia, and looks different in all of them. In Tanzania it was a competition, that chose a winner and a runner up. In Russia, community groups are asked to nominate champion women food producers. In Tanzania over 6000 women applied to be part of the competition, and coverage of the finale reached up to 37m people! We didn't do much around International Women’s Day, but for AWID (Association of Women in Development) conference in Istanbul in April, we took female food heroes from Tanzania and the Philippines to the conference, and they had a chance to speak out.
  • Fans who signed up to the campaign on tour had their pictures posted in our Fan Wall widget.
  • Some issues to raise? Drought or conflict? Somalia became a famine because of conflict on top of drought. Somalis fled to camps because of conflict, and this is probably the reason why we don’t think they will go home any time soon Direct programming vs remote? Somalia is off-limits, as were parts of Wajir at times – we work very effectively through trusted long-term partners camps vs communities? Require very different tactics – camps are arguably ‘Oxfam at its best’ – community work is arguably harder – isolated places, small numbers, different bespoke needs…….. Reason for fewer beneficiaries in Ethiopia…? THESE PHOTOS: Cash distribution in Turkana, run by Oxfam staff Water being supplied by Hijra – our partner in Afgooye, Somalia
  • THESE PHOTOS: Supplying water in Dolo Ado – a huge effort, successfully achieved Cash for work in Shenille, Ethiopia – supporting communities in isolated places
  • Poverty and suffering occurs all over the world, not just in developing countries. In the UK more than 13 million people live in poverty*, and Oxfam’s mission to ‘overcome poverty and suffering’ is no less applicable in this ‘rich’ country than it is abroad. Health and poverty This statistic shows that people in poverty are disadvantaged from the start of their lives and that it’s not their fault. The correlation between poverty and ill health, is shocking: Stark inequalities are found across a wide range of health indicators, from infant death to the risk of developing a mental illness. And a child born in the poorer Calton area of Glasgow has a life expectancy of 54, while those born in the more affluent Lenzie North area of the same city have a life expectancy of 82.9 Adults in the poorest fifth of the population are twice as likely to be at risk of developing a mental illness as those on average incomes. *The poverty line as used here – and by the UK government – is defined as 60 per cent of the median UK income. There is an ongoing debate about what ‘poverty’ means and how to measure it. However, most commentators agree that poverty needs to be understood in relation to typical living standards in society. Here is a widely-used definition from Professor Peter Townsend: “ Individuals, families and groups in the population can be said to be in poverty when they lack the resources to obtain the types of diet, participate in the activities, and have the living conditions and amenities which are customary, or are at least widely encouraged and approved, in the societies in which they belong.” Could do the quiz here to see what your audience already knows and to stimulate discussion
  • Through a network of partners in each country, we are able to work on a variety of projects across the UK, arising in response to local needs and delivered by local organisations.
  • CFW was done even before 1990s but CTPs in general caught momentum in 90’s. In the initial period, CaLP operated at a very small scale and focused on capturing and sharing learning and using these for training practitioners (mainly staff & partners of OGB, SCUK and BRC) Following on from the experience of using CTPs in tsunami response, Oxfam along with SCUK and BRC, initiated CaLP in 2006/07 to share learning and good practise in CTPs Over the years, Oxfam has become much bolder and innovative in its CTPs – eg. (i) Working with technology to transfer cash – MPESA, remittance companies in fragile contexts, (ii) working effectively with national banks at very low or no service charges – Pakistan and Ethiopia, (iii) research on the impact of CTP on gender relations, (iv) use of CTPs in non food sectors – CTP in shelter in Indonesia, CTP in WASH in Haiti etc.
  • • Basic needs grants. An unconditional once-off grant of 2,000 Haitian Gourdes (approximately USD50) to support households to cover their basic needs. There were 6,020 beneficiary households. • Community canteens. This was a five-month project to provide lunch for vulnerable families. There have been 195 canteens, with each canteen providing meals to 80 persons for eight weeks each (Monday to Friday). In addition, the canteens provide work to small restaurant owners who may otherwise have no source of income. There were a total of 3,662 households for the community canteens • Cash for work. This provided very poor or poor households with no skills with a source of income. Oxfam has worked with 4,656 households. • Livelihoods recovery grants. These were grants of 5,000 Haitian Gourdes (approximately USD125) to enable beneficiaries to re-start / start small businesses. Grants have been provided to 12,303 households so far. • Small enterprise generation toolkits. This activity is planned for Phase 2, beginning in August 2010. These toolkits are to be provided to 1,302 people who have a trade of specialist skills (e.g., plumbers, bakers, builders etc) to re-establish their trade, thereby contributing to the economic recovery. The target for these grants are the middle households, rather than the very poor and poor. The toolkits are valued roughly at USD500 per kit. In total, there have been 24,938 beneficiary households, or 124,690 individuals.
  • Marie Carole Boursiquot was one of 56 women who ran Oxfam’s first community canteens in Port au Prince, for two months from March to May. Oxfam supported her financially so she could feed 80 of the most vulnerable people in her community and make a profit for herself, as a first step to regaining her own means of subsistence..... “Things were difficult right after the earthquake, but we’re Haitian so we have to get up and move forward. Then there was the community canteen and that work really helped me; I was able to set some money by to start my business back up. Now I have my own stall again. Every week, while I had the canteen, I would put aside some of the profits, 1,000 gourdes here and 1,000 gourdes there, and I would send the girls out to buy things for my shop; I also borrowed a little money so that I could buy the rest of the stock. Now I am selling all kinds of things; rice, sugar, beans, pasta, coal…”
  • 1. Unconditional grants:’ In areas where Oxfam is already operational (IDP response including cash transfers), unconditional cash grants to cover immediate food needs. This started immediately, and blanket coverage of affected population was done. 2. Asset protection : In areas where some livestock was not been totally washed away, fodder distribution and vaccination and deworming campaign for livestock asset protection was taken up. 3. CFW/VFW: supporting income of poor households whose sources of income have been affected. work component included: cleaning of own households and/or rehabilitation of infrastructures and/or rehabilitation of agricultural fields (cleaning sand and rubbles et rehabilitating irrigation canals). Based on the rapid assessment conducted by Oxfam and its partners in various districts affected in KPK province, the main food security and livelihood needs were: Immediate support to meet food needs of directly and indirectly affected households Support to access income to meet families’ basic needs in the short- and mid-term Asset protection for livestock The first phase strategy included three axes: Unconditional cash grants : (approx. 5000 hhs) In areas where Oxfam is already operational (IDP response including cash transfers), unconditional cash grants to cover immediate food needs. This started immediately, and blanket coverage of affected population was done. Asset protection: ( approx. 8000hhs/56000people) In areas where some livestock was not been totally washed away, fodder distribution and vaccination and deworming campaign for livestock asset protection was taken up. Cash/Voucher for Work (16400 hhs/114,800 people) to support income of poor households whose sources of income have been affected. The work component included: cleaning of own households and/or rehabilitation of infrastructures and/or rehabilitation of agricultural fields (cleaning sand and rubbles et rehabilitating irrigation canals). Following the flood and the lack of fodder, some households who have not lost their livestock might have to slaughter them or might loose them due to the lack of livestock feed and/or due to waterborne livestock diseases. All households in the targeted affected villages, irrespective of their wealth status prior to the flood or of the extent of losses due to the flood. The absence of targeting is justified by the need to act quickly and by the aim to cover immediate basic needs for the population in most affected areas. There will be no work requirement attached to the grant. One of these livestock asset protection projects will be implemented within the current ECHO project in which 5,000 households have benefited from restocking in April-June 2010. A cost extension was looking at targeting more beneficiaries, but will be redirected to support protection of the assets that have already been distributed.
  • MALYARA GUJAR 65, making a quilt as part of Oxfam's cash for work scheme. She is a widow and has 4 girls, 2 boys 'We donâ t have any money for medical bills, said Malyara Gujar. We are poor people. Everything we had was damaged in the floods. Everything. ' These women in Ingorederai village, Bunn Union Council Lower Swat are making winter quilts. They'll be distributed to some of the worst-hit flood areas and also provide a cash income for the women themselves, who also lost livestock and household items in Pakistanâ s devastating floods ...The cash-for-work project, organized by Oxfam and its local partner, Lasoona, is giving women a chance to earn money for basic necessities and also helps to take their minds off their daily difficulties.. Programme Information Several months after Pakistan was hit by devastating floods, aid agencies are warning that the approaching winter could usher in a new crisis with fears that flood-affected families in the north, who lost homes and belongings, will be ill-prepared to deal with sub-zero temperatures. There are fears that harsh winter climates could lead to a steep increase in illnesses, including pneumonia and other respiratory diseases. Oxfam as been distributing thousands of winter kits to some of the worst flood-hit communities in Upper Swat, in Kyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) – areas where temperatures can fall below 15 degrees Celsius and are often cut off by heavy snows. The agency says there is an urgent need for the government of Pakistan and the donor community to support ongoing emergency and early recovery work.
  • Wild Fruit and Animal Skins. Many families have gone for weeks living only on wild fruits they find on local bushes. These fruits must be boiled for several days before they can be consumed. Dried animal skins are also used to stave off hunger for a few hours.
  • 1.4m people in Somali region of Ethiopia needed humanitarian assistance (G0E) Oxfam provided CFW (@600 birr for 15 days work/mth) to affected hh but we also wanted to increase availability of food in the region and encourage women traders, so we combined our CFW with grants to women’s groups for trading in food commodities. This has dual purpose (i) increase availability of food at affordable prices and (ii) women’s economic empowerment The market support involved a start-up grant to the women’s groups to obtain the necessary food stocks (provided in kind), followed by cash support to pay for transport costs in one to three additional re-stocks, depending on the capacity of the group to fund this independently of Oxfam. Training in business skills and tools for trading were also supplied. The team decided to pilot this approach with five groups and has scaled it up to an additional 11 groups. This was planned as a cash grant but most women’s groups felt in-confident to deal with large cash and also feared that the cash will be taken away by men in the household to buy chaat. Therefore, Oxfam facilitated the link between wholesalers and the women’s groups and paid the wholesaler directly on behalf of women. This is the Fatuma Ali Wise (mother of 6). She is a member of the Damal women’s group in Ayesha woreda. “Don’t remind me of this time!” Fatuma throws her hands up as she explains. During the worst of the drought, Fatuma was pregnant with her youngest child. Her husband was away (he had migrated out of the village to look for work) when she gave birth. Without any income, Fatuma was forced to purchase everything, including food, on credit, which led to her building up more and more credit. Eventually the store where she was buying from stopped extending credit to her, which cut off the supply of food to Fatuma and her family. Fatuma had no means to pay back the credit she had amassed, but this didn’t stop the shopkeeper hounding her to pay it back, even coming to her home to quarrel with her. “ But it affected not only the food we eat; our children’s education suffered, also.” Fatuma was unable to buy the books that her children needed for school.
  • L-R, Aramla Salim, Fatima Shene and Kartouma Abdullahi . In times of food shortages, women dig up ant nests to find grain the Ants have stored. The grain , known as 'Fonio". is sieved to separate it from sand. Aramla: "When I do not have enough to eat, I start by relying on the wild herbs which grow after the harvest is over. However, because the rainy season has been so bad this year, there are no wild herbs now. So I have to look for cereals in ant nests."
  • On average the amount distributed varies between 40 and 45£ per month. In Agadez we provide 42£ but it covers only 60% of food needs (food is more expensive there), the rationale is that people benefit from other sources of income and food (counter seasonal cash or food crops such as onions and potatoes). In Chad, we provide cash, vouchers and in kind (WFP rations) depending on appropriateness of the response
  • Djene’bou Kone’ is among the poorest in her village. She is a beneficiary of Oxfam’s long term CTP that involved cash grants in 3 instalments at specific times (acc. to the seasonal calendar) in the year for (i) consumption, (ii) protection of assets and (iii) promoting production. Earlier Djene’bou had to struggle to get past the hunger season but because of the CTP, she was able to eat welll throughout the hunger season and also invested the money to start a business. She bought Maize at lower rates (50CFA/kg) when food prices were low and sold it at higher rates (above 75CFA/kg) when the prices went up.

  • Welcome to this global brand identity workshop.
  • We need a singular description of ourselves. This is tricky even in just one country. We want this so that we can tell people why they should listen to us in their busy days.
  • We need a consistent look and feel to help people know us. These are examples of how the brand looks across the globe – this is how the brand looks and how communications work. The argument that it doesn’t matter if each country is different is no longer valid due to the growth in global media.
  • Research showed us that people are looking for change, to take control of our own lives. We also learnt about Oxfam and what people wanted to hear – that we have innovative, tangible solutions, and for us to tell them what is unique about us – that we work to fight poverty with strong, simple solutions, but that we campaign for change that lasts and have amazing ways for all of us to be involved.

  • In tough economical environment we are still number 1 charity. MOST PROFIT 2011 LEAGUE TABLE AND LOWEST COSTS ON RENT AND STAFF ALSO. We generate the most profit from our network and we are stronger as we are much more efficient at generating profit than our competitors. For every £1 we spend on our retail network we make 44 pence profit We have lowest rents and lowest staff costs so we really are focussing hard on controlling costs BHF beat us on profit per shop per week
  • NOTE: Can we make these two slides match up? 27mill vs 25.9mill – no! –see note We are hoping for this success to continue, we have just finished 2012 and we are 2.9m above our budget Best year ever, even better than 2005 when the tsunami boosted our profits significantly with increased donations. (NB: This 25.9 figure includes a few million worth of internal recharges not shown in previous slide)
  • Pause. Then summarise
  • Represent oxfam by improving the connection between shops and Oxfams Programme work in Shop Experience pilots. This is not the finalised images of what we will be doing but demonstrate some of the things we will be aiming for with the objective of Linking the UK public with Programme work through the shops.
  • Bra Hunt good example of representing Oxfam. Linking shops to Oxfams Programme work. Using Shops as a way of communicating Oxfams work and reaching a wide audience using our high street presence and gaining extensive press coverage (Sunday Times article and many more).
  • We have been speaking to the shop network in the last year using the volunteer survey and at shop conferences. We wanted to listen to shop teams to understand how we could support them more. These are some comments we received in the volunteer survey. Volunteer survey background if you need. 20 th – 31 st January 194 random shops selected 903 responses, mainly online 15% of potential respondents All operations/area patches covered 31% gave additional feedback through a free-text box
  • The feedback from the volunteer survey as well as from the retail line (in meetings and Shop conferences), has helped begin to shape what ‘Supporting each other’ means to the shop network and fed through potential ways in which we could we achieve this.
  • Aim to increase donated sales. Four reasons why sales go up: Marks & Spencer relationship will give more stock Drive on donations in shops Sort out theft issues in banks Sainsbury carpark exclusive deal will again give more stock Stock acquisition is still essential. Corporate donations very important. New initiative Shwopping of the back of One day wardrobe clear and success of our relationship with MS. Reduce theft from donation banks Secured deal with Sainsbury’s for donation banks. The plan is to grow like for like by 2.6% (we have asked shops for 3.5%) + get existing shops open to hit business case (average shop is £51K NSC)
