An issue that we face in telling stories from around the world is language. One of the ways of getting around that barrier, and bring stories to life, is through pictures. Over the last couple of days we’ve had some fantastic images that show how amazing Oxfam’s work can be. Here are some of my favourites:

A l’occasion de la semaine CULTIVONS, nous vous invitons à découvrir des histoires représentatives du travail d’Oxfam à travers le monde. Certaines sont légères, comme celles relatant l’organisation de concours gastronomiques, d’autres sont plus sérieuses. Cette diversité est l’une des raisons pour lesquelles je suis fier de travailler pour Oxfam.

For GROW Week we’re bringing you a range of stories that reflects the breadth of work that Oxfam does around the world. Some of this is light-hearted, such as food calendars and competitions, and some are more serious. This diversity is one of the reasons that I’m proud to work for Oxfam.

Today is World Food Day, an important day of celebration and campaigning all over the world. To coincide with this, Oxfam and partners are taking part in GROW Week to highlight the issues.

From reading, editing and uploading the stories and scanning pictures winging their way into our blog it’s clear that my colleagues are having fun as they make some noise about food and land issues.

Often when the evening news has its “world news” section it’s bleak and can often leave you feeling a little bit hopeless. But from our work around the world we meet people who are doing great things and are part of powerful movements that are changing lives and transforming communities.

GROW Week is back for 2012 and it’s bigger than ever before! Thousands of people in over 40 countries are celebrating not just the power of food, but also the land where it’s grown.

GROW Week 2012 kicked off on Monday 15th October, just before World Food Day, for a week of celebration and inspiration, bringing together farmers, bloggers, consumers, cooks and campaigners.

Blog: #GROW Week day seven: land grabs

From Uganda to Honduras and Peru to South Sudan - where land is going for as little as 2.5 cents per hectare - irresponsible investors are acquiring land that's classed as 'unused' or 'underdeveloped', but which in many cases is actually being used by poor families to grow food.

It's not necessarily a problem when wealthy companies invest in agricultural land in poor countries for commercial use. But when families are forcibly kicked off the land or less food is grown as a result, that's a very big problem indeed.
