One person can make a difference…imagine what 6 million can do.
Campaigning with Oxfam can be a powerful way to influence change for the better.
The University of Leicester Oxfam Society supports Oxfam UK in its work on vital issues to tackle the root causes of poverty. From life's basics - food, water, health and education - to complex questions around aid, climate change and human rights.
The society is running 2020/21 so please sign up for our mailing list if you're unsure about joining. We will be sending regular updates on our activities planned when term commences.
Winners of the University of Leicester Fundraising Society of the Year for 2014-2015, and nominated for the Green Impact Award for 2017, we help to raise awareness of current issues through out of the box events and campaigning, raising money and the signing of petitions.
In the past we have organised and taken part in...
Oxjam Music Festival
Behind the Barcode Campagin
International Women's Day
Emergency Appeals i.e. raising money in aid of the Mexican Earthquakes and the South Sudan Crisis
Guest Speakers on issues such as Nuclear Disarmament and the Yemen Civil War
Our very own Oxfam gig
Over the next year we intend to stay focused on such things as the Yemen crisis, Oxfam's Coronavirus Response, Equality, Climate Change, Gender Equality and much, much more. As a society we are open to all fundraising ideas and causes, and would love you to join for further inspiration!
We also encourage a social, relaxed atmosphere where you can be confident and enjoy your time with like minded people! Previously we have participated in bar crawls, dessert crawls, group meals, crazy golf and have many more exciting and alternative socials awaiting for 2020-21! (guidlines permitting).
Our meetings are held every Thursday from 6-7pm over Microsoft Teams, so be sure to come along!
To get access to our meetings you are required to be signed up to our mailing list (or a member), as this is how we email out the Teams link the day before each session.
So if you want to make a difference while meeting some amazing people, be sure to join the Oxfam Society!
Be Humankind. OXFAM.
