Oasis Valleys - Present Status

Final Phase of Construction Surges Ahead!

 

Oasis has been working for human and social development for over 25 years now, and has created unique courses in these areas. Various workshops have been designed for the facilitation and creation of better human beings, better organizations, better society, and better World!

 

With a view to consolidate our activities,“OASIS Valleys” - a unique dream project in the subcontinent and perhaps Asia's first Institution of its kind for Character-building and Scientific Human Development Courses - has been created amid 9-acre of organic model farm-forest at Chanod, Vadodara.

 

First phase of construction was completed by the end of 2011 and a functional institute was inaugurated in January 2012. So far, more than 3000 children & 1000 adults have benefited from various camps and workshops in the first two years with a total of 465 plus program days.

 

Oasis programs, especially children camps, have expanded many folds then and a genuine need arose to expand the facilities, and so the 2nd and final phase of construction was initiated in January 2014.
