Oasis is a global movement working in 9 countries around the world. We are a family, 'one Oasis', all committed to our shared vision of transforming the communities we work with.
At Oasis Academy Wintringham we recognise that we are part of this global partnership, with 51 oasis communities across the globe. Our activities around the world may look different depending on the context and needs, but we all share the same ethos and vision for community – a place where everyone is included, making a contribution and reaching their God-given potential.
Within Oasis Academy Wintringham we have been fortunate enough to work with Oasis partners both in South Africa and India. Through these links we have supported the communities with blankets, sporting kits, school equipment, donations, penpals and physical visits.
We have continued to foster the link with Oasis South Africa giving a number of Wintringham students the opportunity to visit and support the work we do over there, specifically focusing on the “Baby Bridge the Gap” and supporting in after school clubs and nursery providers. This has not only helped support Oasis South Africa, but also meant our students have gained invaluable skills and confidence during these trips. Whilst in South Africa students have been immersed in the local culture, seeing the wildlife, walking around Johannesburg, meeting the local communities and even getting to watch an England Vs South Africa cricket match.
