Oasis is committed to working in an inclusive, integrated, empowering and comprehensive way so that all people experience wholeness and fullness of life.
Our objectives are to end trafficking 1 COMMUNITY at a time, and resource the work of Oasis, globally.
TraffickFree COMMUNITIES (TFCs) was our primary program model in the U.S. TFCs were community led initiatives that resourced and empowerd local activists to work with key stakeholders involved in the life of a trafficked person. Oasis has observed in our own work locally and around the world, as well as, in other social change campaigns that community action leads to stakeholder action, which leads to real change. We help with the training and research process to help a TFC get going, but then a TFC organizes itself and meets regularly, with the aim of influencing each of the eight key stakeholders of a community.
Currrent Programs we support
