Oasis responds to the local needs of 51 communities across the globe, which requires an enormous amount of support and resource.
Global partnering is one of the ways our academies can support the varying needs of country specific programmes. From providing funds and gifts in kind, to arranging visits during the holidays to offer more hands-on help.
Oasis Academy Shirley Park is partnered with Oasis Zimbabwe and Oasis Belgium
Oasis Zimbabwe seeks to give impoverished children the best start in education they can, through establishing pre-schools in partnership with local churches in the high-density suburbs of Harare. These pre-schools also enable Oasis to improve the health outcomes of children.
In Epworth, the most deprived community in Harare, Oasis has an ever-expanding hub that utilises sports with youth to develop life-skills, reduce HIV and AIDS and encourage entrepreneurship. Oasis also provides practical and vocational skills training for vulnerable girls, and a safe home called Tanaka with rehabilitation for former street girls and an outreach programme for street based youth.
Oasis Belgium has been active in fighting human trafficking and poverty in the country for many years.
Oasis is a Christian organisation working in Belgium since 2007. Inspired by the life and teachings of Christ, we run projects supporting the children of people without papers, helping them to stay in school, eat well, receive support through our new trauma-sensitive yoga program and have stable accommodation whilst helping their parents to regulate their papers and find work. We run projects that help women who have been trafficked to come out of exploitation, find community and employment. Oasis Belgium has a project which helps to connect isolated elderly people to community and also a project which uses running to raise awareness about human trafficking, as well as giving young people access to sport.
With an active role in STOP THE TRAFFIK, Oasis Belgium is committed to educating young people through a schools programme and to change policy at government level through proactive lobbying.
