Welcome to Oasis Place


At OASIS, a registered non-profit organisation founded in Cape Town in 2000, we are using sports as a force for good. We believe in sports as a driver of social change. We teach disadvantaged young South Africans about fair play, inclusion and respect – lessons directly transferable to their lives in general.

Off the pitch, we leverage the universal passion for football to get our participants involved in our various social development programmes. And keep them there.

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers


About Oasis

OASIS is a registered non-profit organisation. Founder Clifford Martinus grew up in the Cape Flats himself but had the increasingly rare privilege of a healthy family environment, educated with social values and purpose.

Through seeing where a lot of his friends and others around him ended up, Clifford wanted to make a positive impact. After many years of community work in the Cape Flats, he founded OASIS in 2000.
