"Throw myself into the abyss trusting that God will be there to receive me" a phrase that marked our commitment. Today, the 3rd of September, is a wonderful day to celebrate, that our project Oasis has been in the territory of San Luis for 10 years.
Our objective from the beginning has been to be a house with open doors, a place of welcome for all; a space of love, listening, affection and service, a place where everything is possible.
We have lived moments of happiness moments of anguish , good days and even better ones, but always with the presence of God among us.
Many lives of the territory have passed through here, more than 80 foreign volunteers have given the best of their lives here, Colombian volunteers who never leave us alone, an incredible local team and the trust of our partners Fondacio and the Emilio Valenzuela School , who from the beginning supported our dream.
Thank you to God for challenging us every day, for showing us the way and for putting your trust in what we do; thank you to our beneficiaries for making Oasis a reality; thank you to our allies, donors and benefactors without you many things could not happen, God multiply your generosity every day. We look forward to many more years of service to God's work.
What is Oasis ?
Oasis is a community center with an open door policy. It was founded in 2011. Since then it has supported the inhabitants of the San Isidro neighborhood, a territory 3.100 meters high in the mountains of the northeast of the city of Bogotá. Over the years we have created different social actions where the population can access, and also get involved in, educational, environmental and housing projects.
Oasis is a solidarity project co-created by Fondacio Colombia and the Fundación Colegio Emilio Valenzuela (FCEV). Over the years, the Oasis team has built a network of national and international allies in their social action with the ultimate goal of allowing sustainable development of the projects.
