Welcome to Oasis Peace Web Organisation
Oasis Peace Web (OPW-O) is an organisation dedicated to the goal of peacebuilding and good governance. The organisation seeks to address the unique challenges of peace facing our societies by laying initiatives to prevent conflicts and to promote good leadership.
