The first anniversary, celebrated in the presence of representatives of the Veolia group and under the sponsorship of Elback Zeinabou Tari Bako, Minister for the Advancement of Women and Child Protection, provided an opportunity to take stock.

In one year, the Oasis hosted 63 events attended by 2,500 people. At the same time, 686 women developed their entrepreneurial management skills, enabling them to develop a profitable business. This social and environmental dynamic extends beyond L'Oasis: indeed, many women share the knowledge and skills acquired in L'Oasis within their neighbourhood, through collective organizations or workshops.
