The Mission


OASI (‘oasis’) was founded with the aim of supporting decision-makers and those involved in the planning, implementation and evaluation of educational, social and socio-health care interventions and services.

OASI works towards the strengthening of community resources and systems through activities of training, consulting, research and technical assistance to decision makers and social workers involved in the field of interventions and services to individuals (in particular children, adolescents and youth), families and groups. For this reason, it represents a qualified resource for institutions and organisations of the civil society, called under the new regulations to take a role of increased responsibility in education policies, welfare, youth and family.

How we work

The association operates through the implementation of projects tailored to the needs of individual initiatives. OASI adjusts each intervention to real needs, through a joint analysis of goals and results. Whenever the complexity of the job requires it, OASI involves qualified and reliable partners, at the same time ensuring the unity and consistency of the overall intervention.

The Association’s commitment is characterised by two main features:

  • co-responsibility and customization: strategies and activities are decided jointly, but then are managed individually, as each activity is assigned to a single reference person who supervises it along its implementation;
  • professionalism and ethics: as far as the choice of partners and initiatives, as well as the management and implementation of interventions are concerned, OASI members comply with professional codes of ethics focusing on the social responsibility of the organisation and the person.
