7. Oasis Association
Who Are They?
The Oasis Association provides education and employment for young people with intellectual disabilities who are excluded from mainstream schooling and the formal job market. By providing products and services to consumers that require the skills these individuals can offer, Oasis provides a supportive environment that transitions these young people from school into employment.
The Endowment is supporting Oasis to expand its social enterprise and self-sustainable model which trains and provides employment opportunities to intellectually disabled individuals. Simultaneously, Oasis provides a 12-month internship for non-intellectually disabled unemployed youth, Companion Workers, who assist in programme delivery and oversight.
