OASIS Initiative Fund


The OASIS Initiative Fund supports the OASIS Initiative (Organizing to Advance Solutions in the Sahel / Organiser l'Avancement des Solutions au Sahel), a joint program of the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, and Venture Strategies for Health and Development. All donations are tax-deductible.

Your donation will help OASIS provide the following services in the Sahel:

  • $500 will support a local champion in family planning and girls’ empowerment at the new Center of Excellence For Women's Health And Empowerment (to be launched in 2017 with Université Abdou Moumouni in Niger).
  • $1,200 will support field research in rural Niger examining social and economic barriers to keeping girls in secondary school and delaying child marriage.
  • $4,800 will support one Sahel Leadership Program fellow from West Africa for one full year with intensive in-person leadership training and a one-on-one mentorship program.

Please donate to support our work.
