THE FACES BEHIND INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERING

Oxfam-Québec invites you to discover international cooperation from the vantage point of its volunteers. For its eighth participation in the World Press Photo Montreal exhibition, the Oxfam-Québec team is proud to celebrate them.

These are women and men with remarkable human qualities. Experts who are both gifted and humble. Together, they constitute a vital link in the organization’s great chain of solidarity. A chain that has stood in the way of poverty and injustice for more than 45 years.

Volunteers strive to make the world a better place, going above and beyond every day to support vulnerable populations. In each country where the organization operates, it shares its experience and know-how with on-site partners, who are then better equipped to help local communities.

From communications to project management, by way of agronomy, gender justice, economic development and even entrepreneurship, these Oxfam-Québec volunteers share a common vision: that of social justice, which transcends borders.
