Through sport and education, OSCAR supports and empowers over 3,000 under privileged girls and boys across India. Some of these children need additional support.This may be clothing and shoes, nutrition or extra tuition. The poorest children are all too often left to fend for themselves; it is these children Oscar is seeking to protect through individual sponsorship. An Oscar Young Leader will ensure your child is nurtured and cared for and act as the link between you and the child. Sponsors receive updates on the child's progress and told how the donation has been spent. If your child makes exceptional progress you may like to receive photographs and video messages. Oscar invites you to engage with the child’s development and be a part of their journey. Sponsorship acts as a safety net and protects the most vulnerable young people from becoming school dropouts, from child labour, addiction and child marriage. There are a myriad of difficult circumstances that may arise and all will be  considered with the utmost care. It may be necessary to support the parents if a family situation is negatively affecting the child. A donation of £300 per annum provides the safety net.  

Event details

Child Sponsorship

The Child Sponsorship initiative aims to identify and care for the most vulnerable young girls and boys in the slum communities across India. Your £300 sponsorship will provide the much needed additional support, mentorship and direction. It will ensure these young children go to school. To inspire and lead them to make changes to their own lives and community as a whole. To protect them from becoming school drop outs, turning to addiction, being forced into child labour and illegal child marriage. Child sponsorship will enable the Oscar team to focus urgent attention on young people facing challenging daily struggles. When you make your donation you will receive an email outlining what to do next. If you would like to speak to someone about the scheme please email Thank you.
