Various volunteer teams visit Oasis from all over the world.
Whether for half a day or full a full week, we have a commitment to ensuring that your team's visit is participatory, educational and inspirational. At the same time, no one benefits if the team visit undermines the ability of Oasis community members to progress towards reconciliation and independence. We encourage you to read Chapter 7 of the book When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor ... and Yourself" by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert.
We design our team experiences so that is more about "being" and "learning" rather than "doing". Your team will not do things that the Oasis community can do for itself. The team experience will involve mutual assistance for both the team and the community.
