Another Happy Matric Customer, Oasis Team helping creating memories πŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ


Feedback on our 10th Annual Donor Forum & Mini Conference held 21 - 24 Nov 2022 in Upington with Frank Julie & Team.

Daylan William Wrote πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

We have been educated by a great mind with vast experience in the NPO field. Franks ability to transform not just out minds but also our hearts was evident in his passion for development. I believed in his character and the confidence he showcased throughout the training. He truly captivated our attention with all the techniques and tools we can use to transform our NPO's identity instantly. For the first time we could clearly identify and asses our organizations weaknesses and potential strengths. He has scored a beautiful goal by taking us step by step on a path to victory as NPO's.

He also hit an incredible home run when he said, " your donor is next to you."

This followed an exercise where the group was asked what they needed and if someone in the very same group of people was in possession of that product or service.

It was life changing to observe how many donors were in that room.

More beautiful was hiw many people was passionate about giving.

Frank, you are a legend.

We need you.

We need your wisdom.

Thank you for a life changing workshop.

God bless

Hierdie een is om dankie te sΓͺ vir Charlotte De Wee by Absa se Tak in die Mall.

Ek vinnig daar in gepop nadat ek vir die soveelste keer nie Okt se maand staat van hulle Internet Bank Dienste kon trek nie. Ek was ontvang deur Engelse Dame, ek verduidelik my storie, nog skaars klaar gepraat vertel sy in Engels dat ek maar na Rowena moet gaan by die groot Tak. Ek verduidelik haar ek het al vir Rowena epos gestuur, ek tans op kurke en dorp toe nie juis opsie is nie. Sy antw, niks wat hulle kan doen nie, hulle werk nie met dit nie, sy kan ook nie bel nie want sy kry hulle glad nie in die hande nie. Geskok staan ek op en loop uit.

Bel toe Absa se landlyn nommer vra on met Bestuurder te praat, Bestuurder nie beskikbaar nie, maar Charlotte wou vriendelik weet hoe sy kan help nadat die 2de inbevel ook nie beskikbaar is nie. Ek verduidelik, en onmiddelik het sy die ekstra myl geloop, my terug genooi na tak in mall waar ek pas in Engels verduidelik is hulle kan nie help nie.

Ek draai toe terug en was baie vinnig en baie behulpsaam gehelp deur Charlotte De Wee.

Dit maak my bly om te sien ons het nog mense Soos Charlotte wat uit hul pad gaan on te help en nie die emmer aan te stuur nie. Wel gedaan Charlotte jy her my dag gemaak.

Raak ASB ontslae van daardie Engelse dame of sit haar in agterste kantoor πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜€πŸ˜… πŸ‘ŠπŸ™

Groot deel van ons fokus gaan wees om Upington skoon en netjies te maak en daar waar moontlik in pragtige tuine te omskep.

Ons vra die gemeenskap se hulp met skoon maak toerusting soos verskeie grawe, pikke, harke swart sakke, kruiwaens ensovoorts. U kan dit leen of skenk, ons sal self kom op tel by u.

As trotse Upingtoners kan ons hier saam hande vat. Die projek gee vir ons die werkers wat meer as net bereid is om te begin werk.

Saam kan ons verskil maak en Upington weer tot sy reg bring as mooiste dorp in Noord Kaap.

Boek Kompetisie - Nr 2

Goeiedag Almal

Eerstens BAIE DANKIE aan almal wat die eerste poging ondersteun het. Dit is wel baie min bemark en boonop was dit laat kennisgewing.

Aangesien ons die "Random Number" funksie van Excel gebruik het, was daar uiteindelik 5 in plaas van 3 wenners. Aangesien daar genoeg boeke is, het ons besluit om al 5 as pryse aan te bied en nie verder te trek nie. Een persoon (Dirkie) het sy prys afgestaan.

Ons hoop die volgende persone geniet die boek wat hulle kon kies (Hermien of haar seun moet nog kom kies):
CD Tities
B Tities
WB Tities
Hermien Burger

Daar is ook 'n paar "Mills & Boon" wat ek ook ingegooi het. (Is nog suinig met die van Nora Roberts wat ook deur Mills & Boon gepubliseer is.) Die Colin Dexter (Inspector Morse) boek, het ek dubbel gekoop,

Ons het solank ook 'n hele paar Afrikaanse boeke uit die stoor gehaal.

Ek sal dit waardeer indien julle my kan laat weet as julle van groepe weet wat kan baat by die boeke.

Mooi dag verder

FNB Literacy / Consumer Education Programme with Frank Julie / People First Foundation / Fundraising Mentoring Network @ Parow Library


Take my hand and come with me,
I want to teach you about ADHD.
I need you to know, I want to explain,
I have a very different brain.
Sights, sounds and thoughts collide.
What to do first? I can’t decide.
Please understand I'm not to blame,
I just can't process things the same.

Take my hand and walk with me,
Let me show you about ADHD.
I try to behave, I want to be good,
But I sometimes forget to do as I should.
Walk with me and wear my shoes,
You'll see its not the way I'd choose.
I do know what I'm supposed to do,
But my brain is slow getting the message through.

Take my hand and talk with me,
I want to tell you about ADHD.
I rarely think before I talk,
I often run when I should walk.
It's hard to get my school work done,
My thoughts are outside having fun.
I never know just where to start,
I think with my feelings and see with my heart.

Take my hand and stand by me,
I need you to know about ADHD.
It's hard to explain but I want you to know,
I can't help letting my feelings show.
Sometimes I'm angry, jealous, or sad.
I feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and mad.
I can't concentrate and I lose all my stuff.
I try really hard but it's never enough.

Take my hand and learn with me,
We need to know more about ADHD.
I worry a lot about getting things wrong,
Everything I do takes twice as long.
Everyday is exhausting for me...
Looking through the fog of ADHD.
I'm often so misunderstood,
I would change in a heartbeat if I could.

Take my hand and listen to me,
I want to share a secret about ADHD.
I want you to know there is more to me.
I'm not defined by it, you see.
I'm sensitive, kind and lots of fun.
I'm blamed for things I haven't done.
I'm the loyalist friend you'll ever know,
I just need a chance to let it show.

Take my hand and look at me,
Just forget about the ADHD.
I have real feelings just like you.
The love in my heart is just as true.
I may have a brain that can never rest,
But please understand I'm trying my best.
I want you to know, I need you to see,
I'm more than the label, I am still me!!!!

13 July 2022 - Lotto Application Assistant Session @ Oasis Centre 10h00


12 Julie 2022 omstreeks 13h00 Spreekbeurt saam met Roderick "Game changer" Titus.

Ons fokus op die storie van Oasis Sentrum ontstaan, die dienste wat dit aan persone wat anders bevoeg is bied en hoe die gemeenskap betrokke kan raak.

Die Grondwet bepaal dat elke kind het die reg tot gratis en kwaliteit onderrig, hoe laat ons as 'n gemeenskap toe dat na meer as 28 Jaar word hierdie Leerders verbonde aan Oasis Sentrum se menslike regte nog steeds geskend word.

Ons nooi u uit om betrokke te raak. Skakel Irvin K Eksteen by 082 853 1574 of [email protected] en vind uit hoe u kan help om 'n verskil te maak. πŸ™ŒπŸ€πŸ€›βœŠπŸ’ͺπŸ™


As deel van ons Fondswerwing Projekte gaan Oasis Sentrum elke Vrydag die heerlikste gebak, gekook, gebraai en sommer alles in een doen om fondse in te samel om te help met die dag tot dag uitgawes vam ons Leerders en Personeel. Hierdie is een van vele maniere hoe u kan help, deur bestelling te plaas.

Die 15de verkoop ons die Heerlikste Kerrie Roti's. U kan ons kontak om bestellings te plaas.

Ons waardeer alle ondersteuning, maak nie saak hoe gering nie, en ek belowe u, die kwaliteit is tops πŸ‘ŒπŸ’₯πŸ‘Œ


Ek weet verseker vandag dat Past ND Bock geen erkening of eer soek, vir die eerste suksesvolle jaarlikse "Beneficial Gospel Show" te Oasis Sentrum nie. Hy het ingestap by Oasis die behoefte raak gesien en besluit hy gaan 'n verskil maak, op 'n manier wat net ND Bock kan.

Ons wil dus vir Past ND Bock en sy gade, die "Worship Team" alle pastore en kerkleiers wat teenwoordig was asook die verskeie jeug- en sang groepe bedank vir hul bydrae tot die suksesvolle 3 aande.

Geen weer of krag onderbrekings kon ons keer nie, want ND Bock was slag gereed met generator en alles.

Aan alle donateurs, skenkers en vrywilligers baie dankie vir u ondersteuning dit was wonderlik om saam met u die Here te aanbid deur middel van sang en die boodskappe wat uit is. U was awesome verby.

Ons kon met hierdie moedige poging in een aand vir Oasis Sentrum versterk en op die pad gesit met R36000.00. Ja, u het reg gehoor.
