Recycle your mobile phone for Oxfam
For over 60 years, Oxfam has been working with organisations around the
world to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. Currently, we work in
more than 70 countries – including the UK – and respond to an average of
30 emergency situations each year.
Oxfam’s work includes development, campaigning and advocacy at the
highest level, lobbying international organisations and influencing governments.
Because in a world rich in resources, there’s enough to go around.
Poverty isn’t unfortunate, it’s unfair.
£700,000 raised for Oxfam and counting…
Corporate Mobile Recycling has worked with Oxfam for over 7 years
collecting mobile phones from Oxfam’s 750 high street shops, Oxfam’s
individual and corporate supporters and 2,000 Co-operative outlets.
During the last financial year (2007 / 8), we raised £166,000 for Oxfam which
is enough to fund Oxfam’s Education Programme in Tanzania for one year.
This project aims to make good quality primary education available by
training teachers, providing libraries and resource centres and increasing the
number of children in primary education.
