Oasis for Girlspartners with young women of color aged 14-18 from under-resourced communities in San Francisco to help them cultivate the skills, knowledge, and confidence to build healthy futures leading into more equitable and just communities.
How the program contributes to peace and social consciousness:
Their programs are designed to provide a safe space for girls to develop confidence, wellbeing, and self-care tools for long-term healthy growth and engagement within their communities. Promoting social consciousnesses through compassion, inclusion, and advocacy are at the core of their educational programs.
How we collaborated
Elizabeth Gutierrez and Ann Bui of Oasis for Girls co-facilitated our peaceful world conversation lunch event, Celebrating Diversity and Advocacy with our 2018 grantee, The Mosaic Project. The approach towards peace is no different from the approach towards diversity as it invites us to arrive at both with cultural humility and assertive communication.
In 2019, Peaceful World Foundation attended their 20th Anniversary Oasis Shine Gala in San Francisco. Today, we continue fostering our relationship and planning future events online.
