How can you become involved?

The Adopt-a-learner Project gives the public (local and international) an opportunity to financially assist the poorest kids at Oasis. The parents of some learners cannot even afford to pay the basic fee of R100,00 per month. By adopting a kid you can support these learners. Funds obtained are also used to buy essential equipment for Oasis Centre and pay for specialized services like physio, speech and other therapeutic services.

In return Oasis will supply you with information on the learner you adopted (age, sex, birthday) together with a photo as well as an annual progress report every July and November.

If you want to adopt a learner our banking details are:

We have received support from Cla-Val, a Swiss company, who adopted 30 learners. SAD a local business had adopted 10 learners. 



Oasis is also linked to Dream Catchers, a Cape Town based community support organisation. Dream Catchers aims to develop, train and profile 50 women tourism entrepeneurs. To accommodate volunteers and leisure tourists, two homestay Kamamma's have been identified in Upington. Manini Xeba (Pabalello) and Ellen Zwartz (Extension 12) have started with the development of their homes and skills transfer.
