Oxfam Novib (ON) is committed to working towards a just world without poverty. We have a conviction that people are well capable of building a livelihood without poverty on their own, once given the chance to do so. Which is why we support local projects in developing countries, why we lobby governments and companies to take into account the interests of the poorest people, and why we campaign to involve Dutch men and women also in our work.

There is a vacancy for an Intern on Access to Information.
