The OASIS Initiative (Organizing to Advance Solutions in the Sahel / Organiser l'Avancement des Solutions au Sahel), a project of University of California at Berkeley and Venture Strategies for Health and Development, is building the evidence base and local leadership necessary to overcome the most serious development challenges in the Sahel region of Africa. We are focused on three strategies critical for the region: 1) educating and empowering adolescent girls and women, 2) expanding access to voluntary family planning, and 3) adapting agriculture to climate change, in order to improve the well being of families in the Sahel region.
