Oasis for Kids
We are currently preparing autumn workshops for children, drafting a manual for teaching staff on the establishment of school gardens, and researching the effects of the program on schools. We are also looking forward to the arrival of Green Fingers international volunteers! The activities are financed by the Swiss-Croatian Cooperation Program.
In the very center of Zagreb, Radićeva Street 9, we opened a vegan fast food OAZA Joyful Kitchen, where we happily cook healthy and delicious meals. Joyful Kitchen is a social enterprise – with our activities we want to contribute to the education of young people, environmental protection and the promotion of healthy lifestyles.
We are constantly developing this training program for young leaders, starting new partnerships and improving our working methods. We are looking forward to new generations of participants of the training course who will come to Zagreb for a seven-day education.
