 The Oasis Project, The Gambia 

The Oasis Project was founded by Chris Hayter in November 2007 after years of getting to know the people in the community of Bakau. 
 
Our work is humanitarian with our main aim being to improve health and living conditions, sponsor families and individuals, support and facilitate various projects. 

An emphasis on self reliance and sustainability 

We place the needs of the community and their well being as the main priority of our activities. This and only this allows us to have the respect and trust of the people. 

About the area 

Gambia is a tourist destination and has beautiful beaches but within a 1/4 of a mile from the beach you will find communities needing help and support. 
We work closely with the community in Bakau, to make changes in their environment which will empower each individual to go and achieve their potential. 
OUR PROJECTS 
 
We are working on a number of projects that will improve living conditions for thousands of Gambians. 
IN THE COMMUNITY 
 
We include local leaders and our Youth Association who are an important link with the community. 
BE A VOLUNTEER 
 
We welcome volunteers wanting to assist in our administration and organising of fund raising events. 
 
I hope we are able to inspire you to contact us and offer your support in any way that you can as every little bit of help means a lot to the community of Bakau. 
 
Thank you, 
Chris Hayter
