What we do

Extreme poverty has already been halved.  And together we can end it.

Welcome to Oaktree - young people leading a movement to end poverty. 

For us, change starts with a simple belief - that extreme poverty is unacceptable. Beliefs turn into action, and enough informed action will build a powerful social movement. 

Imagine this - a movement that looks outwards, not inwards. It spreads from person to person. It gets bigger, and more active, until we see the end of extreme poverty.

Young people have the unique ability to build and lead this movement. And Oaktree is Australia’s largest youth-run organisation with over 150,000 members.   

The Oaktree Foundation Australia ABN 39 129 680 584 (trading as Oaktree) is a Company Limited by Guarantee (a not-for-profit company).

We are also a proud and active member of the Australian Council for International Development.
