Welcome to Oasis of Peace UK

Oasis of Peace is the English translation of the name of Neve Shalom in Hebrew and Wahat al-Salam in Arabic - NSWaS

Oasis of Peace UK supports the Educational Institutions of NSWaS - a community of Jewish and Palestinian-Arab Israeli citizens, located midway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

NSWaS is a pioneering role-model for the many Palestinian-Arab/Jewish projects and for the growing number of Jewish/Palestinian-Arab primary schools.  At present there are six schools in Israel that follow the NSWaS model.

NSWaS stands as a Testament against Extremism; a living example of Equality between Jews and Palestinian-Arabs; Education for Peace and Shared Citizenship. 

Back to School Campaign

Autumn is the season for fresh beginnings.  From the start of the school year in September to the celebration of the Jewish and Muslim New Years in October. What better time for a new challenge?

So, from September 5th (International Charity Day) until the end of October we will be running a Back to School campaign with the aim of raising £5000 to support the educational institutions of Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salam (for a general breakdown of how donations will be sent please see the pie chart below). Throughout the two months we will also be running a few specific funding drives to link with International Awareness days that resonate with our core values (e.g. Peace Day & Democracy Day).

Please help us achieve our goal by donating, and following our progress, at our MyDonate fundraiser page.
