St Mary's Calne - #kicklikeagirl football tour
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. Over 3,000 children take part in the OSCAR programme with over 1200 being girls. OSCAR believes in creating an equal platform for boys and girls to play football together irrespective of their gender, caste, religion or background. With a strong focus on gender equality OSCAR is proud to announce the #kicklikeagirl campaign. Trafficking, abuse, illegally early marriage and youth pregnancies are an ongoing problem for young girls in India. OSCAR works tirelessly to put a stop to this. Providing girls with equal opportunities is at the very heart of the OSCAR programme. Please help us to show young women and girls across India to pursue their dreams.. they can and do come true.
The Head Girl's Team will be raising awareness of the upcoming tour among the school community over the coming weeks and months. They have recently met with Ashok, the founder of the charity, and have been inspired by his vision for the girls in the OSCAR Foundation Programme. We have already held a mufti day for the charity and plans are in motion for a sponsored cycle/run which will cover over 3200 miles - the distance from the North to the South of India.
