An Oasis game is an event for community members to make their dreams come true. By realizing their dreams, they also raise their capacity to help themselves in a better way and to connect them with their fellow community members.

The Oasis game originates from the favelas in Rio de Janeiro. Earlier this year, Oasis games have been organized as well on Curacao and Bonaire.

An Oasis game is filled with games, dance and surprising activities. During the first weekend, community members are encouraged to express their dreams for their community. The second weekend, the community members start working together to realize one of their dreams. The Oasis game will be finished with a celebration party.

The European Development Fund is funding this initiative through USONA.
