We believe that everybody deserves access to a healthy life. Nourishment comes in many forms - food, education, community, creative expression, exercise.


Our Mission

Oasis Powerhouse seeks to offer the community a space to flourish, pursue goals, take risks, and find needed support and resources. The community center offers knowledge on healthy living, and outlets to improve the mind, body, and soul. It will achieve these through many different mediums:

- Oasis Jimma Juice Bar, community members, and volunteers provide free lessons on health and cooking

- Professionals instructors lead fitness, meditation, art, and other empowerment-oriented classes

- Free space is available for community meetings and events that attempt to make a positive impact on our community and others

- Youth and adults from the community can access to mentorship programs and tutoring space

- Space and classes are available for music, printmaking, and other forms of art

Please email us on oasispowerhouse1@gmail.com if you have any skills that you would like to share with the community at Oasis Powerhouse.

When I moved here, there was no way for me to eat healthy in a way that was also affordable. I wanted to reach those people who were like me.
