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 Coulsdon is partnered with Oasis Bangalore, India and Oasis Belgium.
The main purpose of the Hallegudadhahalli Hub in Bangalore is:
- Anti-trafficking awareness
- Human rights advocacy
- Health training
- Soft skills development
- Vocational training
- Football coaching
- After-school education
Community hubs take an integrated approach to community transformation while the anti-trafficking work includes outreach, rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of those who have been trafficked.
Two members of staff, Mrs Butcher and Mrs Kavanagh, spent time in Bangalore visiting projects and finding out how we can help. Throughout the year a series of fundraising events are organised by students to support the work Oasis are doing.
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 regularise 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.
