• 6 African dishes you didn't know existed

    When you think of African cuisine, what comes to mind?

    Influenced by Indian flavours in some areas, Portuguese, Arabic and European in others, the pots and pans of Africa are filled with the kind of diversity, colour and taste that one can never grow tired of. There’s no better way to distil the essence of whichever African country you’re in than by rubbing shoulders with the locals and enjoying a plate of their favourite food. It’s one of those grassroots experiences that money can't buy.

  • Africa - take a closer look

    There's no place on earth quite like Africa. From wildlife to deserts to mountains and beyond, once Africa has touched your heart she never lets go.

    For many, it's a dream they don't ever intend to fulfil. Price, distance and the sheer other-worldiness means many of us think, "I'd love to go, but probably never will." Well, now is the time. Don't wait any longer.

    Africa is calling. Open your ears and your heart and take the leap. She won't disappoint. Here's a selection of images to inspire you:

  • Oxfam in East Africa: 6 months on

    In 2011, parts of East Africa were affected by the worst food crisis of the 21st century. People suffered prolonged drought and poverty, and were desperately in need of help.

    Oxfam Australia put out a call to everyday Australians, who in turn made donations that helped provide 2.8 million people with humanitarian aid in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia. Your donations helped to provide urgent relief, and develop sustainable solutions to provide food for the future.

    To all the generous donors out there, this video is for you!

  • Oxfam: Changing lives in Southern Ethiopia

    Ethiopia is a country where the smiles are as wide as the vast expanses of land. But it's also a country facing crisis.

    Ethiopia used to experience drought every eight years or so, but now it's almost year to year. The situation makes it harder for people to maintain their livelihood. 

    For most Ethiopians, livestock is the main asset, so in times of drought there is no food, no pasture for their animals and no water for the people.
