 With much pride we want to share the Video of the OASIS project!

This project has been an incredible success and we couldn’t be more grateful for your generosity, which enabled us to make the Oasis even more special, sustainable, and effective. 

This OASIS will promote creativity in a secure environment, with a source of shade and clean drinking water has met all of our expectations and has made all of the kids of the school immensely happy and very proud.

We hope you can enjoy it as it is the culmination of a wonderful project, you helped us built and it is proof of the great things we can achieve together.

 

Best,

The CHAMOS Team

On the 26th of May the OASIS was inaugurated in Nuestra Senora de el Encuentro school in Petare.

This park - which before was a barren stretch of land - is now a fun place for these children to play, learn, and drink clean water from. 

Thanks to your generous donation which took us above our original fundraising target for this project, we were able to develop the designs for the park to include features to make the park even more sustainable and practical: including installing a piping and filtration system to create a ‘water wall’ with water fountains at different heights, so that the kids can have access to clean, safe drinking water while at school. We were also able to build an outdoor classroom, with a roof to provide shade, where the children can rest, eat, and participate in workshops and seminars.

 In the future when the trees grow a little higher there will also be more shade to protect them from the sun, that can be overwhelming sometimes!

During my last visit to Caracas we spent two mornings with the children who designed the park, helping them build their dream. We were able to meet in person this fantastic group of intelligent, ambitious and driven 13-year-olds - and hearing about their experiences of the project. Carli, who has been part of the Oasis Project since the beginning, said: “We have been wanting a park for 8 years and we’ve been working on it for 2. I can’t believe this is finally happening!”. For these children, the majority of whom come from very poor backgrounds, without many examples of aspirations or achievements, this park represents a huge accomplishment.

 This project has been an incredible success and we couldn’t be more grateful for your generosity, which enabled us to make the Oasis even more special, sustainable and effective. please find attached the video of the project!

Hope you enjoy watching it and feel as proud as we do of the incredible work everyone did to meke this a reality.

In December 2021, we raised enough funds to make the Oasis Project a reality for hundreds of children at Nuestra Señora del Encuentro School in Petare – the biggest slum in Venezuela. Since then, we have been working hard with our local partners to set the wheels in motion for this ambitious project. 

We have been collaborating closely with the architects to make sure that the park will meet the needs of the children that will be enjoying it every day. We have developed the designs to include features that will make the project even more sustainable and practical, like more trees, to offer important shade, and a covered area, where the kids will be able to do workshops. 

We were also able to bring the children together, in the area where the park will be built, to use their bodies to map out the final designs. For the first time, these kids, who first started this project almost two years ago, were able to visualise their dream becoming a reality.

And, after many weeks of planning, imagining, and designing, we are delighted to announce that next week, construction of the park will begin! After preliminary works have been completed, the children will join our local partner’s team for ‘Transformation Week’ – when they will help build, paint, and bring to life the space they imagined.

We are so excited to be so close to making this Oasis a reality, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without your support. Thank you so much for your donation to this project – we can’t wait to share the final transformation with you very soon!
