This reflective piece focuses on two core intertwined threads of Oxfam Australia's work in South Africa: the capacity building initiatives undertaken to strengthen and support partners and programs, and documenting of the work of Oxfam partners and the communities they serve.
Through interviews with Oxfam staff and partners, this content unpacks the approach used as well as its evolution over the years. It also presents the key principles, lessons and challenges experienced by Oxfam and partners. Critical discussions on power, partnership, interpersonal relationships and responsiveness provide a unique perspective on these aspects of development.
