Through football and education, OSCAR empowers over 3,000 vulnerable girls and boys across India. Many need extra help with clothing, shoes, travel, snacks, football, education & computer fees and competition entry.
Sponsorship enables the poorest children to take part in all aspects of the OSCAR programme. Participation creates the foundation for change, not only for their lives, but that of their family and the wider community.
The poorest children are often left to fend for themselves; it is these children OSCAR seeks to protect. An OSCAR Young Leader ensures each sponsored child is nurtured and cared for.
The OSCAR sponsorship ‘safety net’ protects the most at risk young people from becoming school dropouts, child labour, addiction and early marriage. A donation of £300 pa is all it takes to make the difference.

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. It is only possible to make a one off payment on this site. For monthly direct debits please contact Namaste
