About

The Organisation for Social Change, Awareness and Responsibility (OSCAR) is a not-for-profit organisation, which provides football coaching to underprivileged boys and girls in Mumbai and across India. OSCAR offers a unique programme that not only teaches sport to children and youth, but also helps them to understand the value of education. A team of OSCAR young leaders act as role models and work to identify and tackle the barriers which prevent the boys and girls from reaching their potential.

Event details

The Oscar Foundation UK Schools Tour 2017

I am fortunate enough to have met Ashok Rathod, founder of The Oscar Foundation, their work made a profound impression. The idea to bring an Oscar football team to the UK in Oct 17 was met with enthusiasm from the Mumbai slums & the UK schools. The money raised will fund the tour and crucially an ongoing educational programme, ensuring that hundreds of children benefit. The tour will fly 15 children from Mumbai to the UK for a mix of sport & education. The programme will provide enriching experiences, in keeping with the ethos of the foundation: educating through sport & creating young leaders for the future. The girls & boys at Oscar are underprivileged children facing challenging daily struggles. OSCAR provides an alternative to life on the streets. The tour will educate & enrich children, who will return to Mumbai with experience and knowledge to pass on to friends & siblings & proof that an education really does pay off.
