About Oasis

Oasis in South Africa is movement of change Agents – small, diverse groups of people who are committed to the health of our communities, our own growth and one another. We inspire, equip and sustain to lives of love and hope, while creating opportunities for others to join us.

Our Approach

Oasis South Africa is a nation-wide organisation consisting of locally-based groups each committed to empowering and serving the wider community in which it is based. Rather than being a ‘development’ NGO, Oasis sees itself as a membership-driven organisation, with members in each location mobilising to overcome the challenges they face through mutual support and by building on existing community assets.

Why Youth?

Oasis South Africa’s NGO activities are centred around the upliftment of young people through youth-led programmes. We firmly believe that young people have the agency, recourses and capacity to take charge of transformation, within their own lives and the lives of those they encounter. Our model recognises the assets young people have and provides access to responsibilities serving as catalysts for empowerment, built on dignity and increased agency.

All Oasis change-agents within schools, on the sports field and in our community structures, are led, coordinated and operated by young people from the community. The strategy to engage young men and women is built on a value-based approach that is inclusive, longitudinal, asset-based and integrated.
