OASIS Games Training Sessions Underway

Training sessions for the Oasis Game is currently underway and will continue on Saturday and Sunday at the Dutch Quarter Community Center. Persons interested in becoming a trainer are invited to attend either session on Saturday or Sunday, from 8.00am to 6.00pm.

The Oasis game originates from the favelas in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Earlier this year, Oasis games were organized on Curacao and Bonaire.


To realize this Oasis Game, energetic and inspiring volunteers are invited to attend the weekend sessions. Community members from Dutch Quarter who want to work for their own community are also invited to the meeting. Volunteers from other communities, who would like to learn how to prepare and organize an Oasis game for their own community, are more than welcome. Help your community, learn and have a lot of fun! Join the group of facilitators.

An Oasis game is filled with games, dance and surprising activities. During two weekends (24-25 November, and 1-2 December), Dutch Quarter will be the vibrating scene of an Oasis game. 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.

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 conclude with a celebration party.

The European Development Fund is funding this initiative through USONA.
