About the volunteering opportunity

Oxfam is an international relief and development organisation. We work for a just world without poverty through

  • worldwide emergency and disaster relief
  • Project funding for development and crisis prevention
  • global campaigns on the causes of poverty
  • Commitment to better political and economic conditions

In the Oxfam Shops, teams of volunteers sell donated items for good causes and are thus committed to a just world without poverty. The profits benefit Oxfam's development work.

We are Oxfam

Oxfam is an international relief and development organisation working for a just world without poverty. Oxfam provides emergency and disaster relief worldwide, promotes development and crisis prevention projects, informs about the causes of poverty in global campaigns and works to improve political and economic conditions.

Oxfam Shops are special second-hand shops where volunteer teams sell donated goods under the motto "we make superfluous things liquid". The more than 3,400 volunteers contribute to the success of the currently 54 Oxfam Shops nationwide with their daily commitment. The profits made by the shops benefit Oxfam's development policy work. At the same time, they bring Oxfam's vision and content to the public and are thus an important part of the organisation in terms of their visibility.

Get involved for a just world without poverty and become part of Oxfam.
