Stories of Transformation

Oasis runs a youth centre for young people who have left orphanages (care leavers). We provide them with food parcels, access to computers, cooking classes, and support and counselling.

When it opened, the Youth Center staff had difficulty making contact with leavers and earning their trust. Oksana, one of the staff working at the Youth Center, recently explained, “when I began working, my first order of business was to call all of the young people. It was actually very difficult to make contact with them. They didn’t trust us and didn’t come to us at first.” However, over time, as Oksana and our other staff members continued reaching out to the leavers, the trust grew, and stories began to change.

As we walk alongside people their stories change. We hope that you will enjoy reading about some of them on the pages of our website.
