Community Development Recipients 

Over the years, our various projects have offered numerous possibilities toward the breaking of 'poverty traps' and societal ill-being, such as domestic violence and substance abuse. We work with our partners and community members for the community. We help enable them to act as project leaders and empower themselves and their communities by doing so. We feel it is important to share the stories of our beneficiaries as they are an inspiration to us all.

Micah (name changed to protect privacy), a beneficiary of OASIS support for previously disadvantaged families since 2011, is now in Grade 8 after passing his primary school grades. He is enjoying his new environment and plays rugby in winter and competes in athletics in summer. His dream is to one day become an attorney.

We have supported Micah in the form of bursaries for school fees and aftercare and provided for basic school needs such as stationery and school uniforms. As a result, he did very well throughout his primary school years, competed in rugby and athletics, and participated in cultural events.



Alaya and family


Alaya (name changed to protect privacy), an aspiring chef, lives with her mom in Kuilsriver. She has a teenage son and twin girls.

Her son loves to play soccer with his friends and wants to be in the South African army when he grows up. The twins both want to become doctors or teachers someday – they can’t quite decide yet.

OASIS supports Alaya by providing transport and school supplies for her children so that they can fully enjoy and benefit from their school life.
