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 unique intentional community of Jewish and Palestinian-Arab Israeli citizens, located midway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Based on the ethos of NSWaS, our mission is to advance social equity and cohesion in both Israel and the United Kingdom.

We fundraise and raise awareness through events, newsletters, presentations, talks, visits of delegates from the community. We make applications to Trusts, inter-governmental organisations and other bodies to fund particular projects.

NSWaS is a pioneering role-model for Palestinian-Arab/Jewish projects. Its educational system paved the way 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.
