Mission of OASIS (formerly Venture Strategies for Health and Development)
Venture Strategies for Health and Development aims to help stabilize global population by securing women’s freedom to choose their family size.
The purpose of the project is to transform girls’ lives by providing safe space clubs to adolescent girls in rural Niger, dramatically improving education outcomes and delaying marriage and childbearing.
Why We Love This Project
We love this project which is grounded in proven field tested methodologies with its focus on vulnerable, isolated rural adolescent girls of the Hausa minority in rural Niger. This project involves the entire community in supporting safe spaces for adolescent girls to develop leadership skills, gain knowledge about reproductive health, and receive mentoring to continue their education and increase their self-confidence and self-esteem.
