About Oxfam: 

Oxfam is a global movement of milions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. In just 15 years, extreme poverty has been halved. 15 more years and we can end it for good.To spread that change and make it last, political solutions are also needed to tackle the root causes of poverty and create societies where empowered individuals can thrive. We will always act, we will speak out, and we won't live with poverty.

Although this is a voluntary role, travel and lunch expenses can be covered in line with Oxfam's volunteering policy.
