Oasis is for community:
What does this mean?
Today, in a world where we can buy a pair of shoes and someone will donate a pair of shoes, or we can buy a bottle of water and a company will distribute a bottle of water…..At Oasis, we intimately journey in the community adventure of the people that need the shoes and water.
It may be that human trafficking impacts one community and Oasis helps people escape to freedom. In another Oasis helps children reach a level of education that gets them accepted into local schools. However, these initiatives are only some of the steps in the process of wholeness. Being rescued or educated may be the doorway to escape and awareness but there is also restoration, reintegration and the development of a sustainable lifestyle.
Take the child from the slum that we help educate, but then who is rejected admission to the local school because of no birth certificate. Oasis then becomes an advocate and helps the family get an affidavit that proves the birthdate of the child so they can go to school.
Oasis either develops projects and/or partners with a variety of initiatives, faith groups and organizations that provide integrated resources such as education, healthcare, employment, housing, etc….So that the person or family can pass through the developmental adventure appropriate for a sustainable lifestyle.
In the 28 global communities that Oasis is involved with, depending on the needs of the community, there are education programs, investigative teams, safe houses, vocational training initiatives and a variety of entrepreneurial business ventures available, that assist people being reconciled back into community as they travel towards living out their holistic potential.
Oasis becomes a journeying advocate that ultimately leads to the individual and community moving towards their God given potential.
Oasis is for community, a place where everyone is included, making a contribution and reaching their God given potential.
