Non Government Organisations

In the world of emergency relief and international development, there are a handful of organisations that have transcended their inter-war or post-war roots and built a global reputation for effectiveness despite a broadening mandate. 

It is clear that NGOs have vast and historic experience working in hostile and complex environments. Nevertheless, there remains the need for constant review of process and procedures and the subsequent training of individuals, managers and teams throughout the organisation as well as the essential cross fertilisation of knowledge. 

Oakas Limited has developed close relationships with NGOs developing exceptional training packages. Most recently, Oakas undertook a 4 day leadership and hostile environment training for Directors, Managers and Staffs of an NGO working in Somalia. The event helped developed leadership training, team work but also incorporated technical training such as first aid and radio usage. 

UK - Education and development 

Targeting 16 - 24 year olds the intention is to develop resilience, and self esteem before entering the rigour of the jobs market. 

In the UK, unemployment for this age group is at an all time high. By developing entrepreneurial skills, individuals will have the confidence either in employment or even starting their own business ventures, hopefully improving the state of the economy and reducing the unemployment rate in the process. 

A decisive need for action has been identified by the government. Oakas Ltd uses the skills and knowledge from our highly experienced mentors and trainers in order to empower individuals in this area. Additionally, with a database of ex military, as well as other successful and adventurous personnel, Oakas Ltd provides exceptionally committed and proven mentors.
