Raising awareness of education & sports in OSCAR communities.

With the support of Empower and Vacha, OSCAR has opened The Learning Community for adolescent girls in Mumbai to share, learn, and to create a larger platform to empower girls. The aim is to make essential interventions so girls become proactive in public life, develop leadership skills, and address the barriers they face. Through the Learning Community OSCAR, girls are taking part in many educational activities and events. 

OSCAR girls have both attended and organised events and workshops, mobilizing the community people and creating awareness among the parents about the benefits of sport. Kajal (13) our very young leader has been with the OSCAR Foundation for 3 years. She has never missed a session and has learnt about gender equality and rights and the importance of education. Kajal loves to play football and is determined to complete her education. During the pandemic she helped coaches distribute rations and sanitary napkins in the community, recognised for her hard work and active participation, she was selected for the Learning Community project.

Kajal, with the help of other girls, has mobilized over 200 parents encouraging them to actively participate. She has become a leader in the community and motivated other girls to play football and pursue their education. Kajal comments, "I will make the community people realise that girls are not less than boys. If they get a chance to do something in life they must take it, they can do better than anyone else."

Kajal’s parents light up when they see their daughter taking initiative and motivating other parents and girls in the community. They are grateful to OSCAR for providing a platform for them to play sports and ensuring they stay in education.
