Our mission is to create a world which enables underprivileged girls and boys living in the slums in India to become role models within their communities. The OSCAR Foundation uses the power of football to teach the importance of education and all OSCAR children must attend school. Education transforms disadvantaged communities and provides young people the tools they need to fight poverty for the next generation.

OSCAR International and The OSCAR Foundation in Mumbai work together, raising awareness, funds and creating opportunities for children living challenging lives.

Child Sponsorship

Sponsoring a child provides support and mentorship for all vulnerable OSCAR girls and boys living in the slums. Sponsorship ensures children do not become school drop outs, turn to addiction, are forced into an illegally early marriage or child labour.
