The Oasis model is fully aligned with the Ministry of Social Development (MOSD) Social Protection Strategy and included in the MOSD governance priorities document enrolling National Aid Fund (NAF) recipients in a programme that will then give them key self-reliance skills and lead to a graduation from NAF support to sustainable employment.
