Who are we?
Our mission is to "promote cultural, health and to facilitate community economic empowerment with emphasis on youth leadership development.
We are a non-profit organization serving the neighborhood of West End, Elmwood, Upper South Providence, Lower South Providence, and Washington Park and African immigrant communities. Oasis International started in 1992, as an effort to identify and maintain an infrastructure for professional development for its members. Through the exchange of technical information, general business assistance, and the promotion of cultural activities, we have evolved into a non-profit organization dedicated to long term social exchange and economic development in our neighborhoods. We are acutely aware of the limitations the access to capital and the absence of economic development within our community. These limitations are particularly glaring among the recent immigrants and the low-income who are a significant portion of our population. We are driven to discover ways to improve the economic plight of those in our community by providing consumer education.
