OSCAR U17 Boy's UK Tour 2019

Why we need your help

OSCAR uses football to encourage underprivileged boys and girls from low income slum communities in India to go to school, to nurture their talents and become responsible global citizens. OSCAR beneficiaries are community role models and work hard to change not only their own lives, but that of their family.

OSCAR International provides cultural opportunities and funds for our partners in India, the OSCAR Foundation. One such programme is the annual UK School Football Tour. In October 2019, fourteen, underprivileged U17-year-old boys will fly to the UK for a two-week, football, education and culture tour. The boys never dreamed they would have the chance to fly on a plane and visit the UK. They do not own a birth certificate, let alone a passport, they live in tiny houses, with no running water, toilet, shower or furniture. None of this dampens their spirited determination to get an education, appetite for new experiences and to help get their families out of the poverty cycle. Youth in poor communities all too often drop out of school and turn to drink, drugs and crime. Girls still marry as young as 12, with inevitable youth pregnancies. OSCAR supports vulnerable young people with guidance to avoid the destructive consequences of not going to school. 

OSCAR knows an education and a life changing opportunity for an individual will benefit the whole family and wider community. OSCAR children return from overseas trips with confidence, improved English, higher aspirations, greater determination and confidence and as exemplary role models. They learn from the UK pupils and they in turn, inspire the UK children and demonstrate resilience, teamwork and overcoming hardship. They become friends for life, they teach each other. The UK TOUR engages young people globally with so they can all learn together.  

Funds donated will pay for passports, visas, flights and football kit. In the UK the team will be hosted by schools, incl Marlborough, Bradfield, Shoreham, Brighton, Malvern, Harrow, Sheldon School, WLFS and Kings College School.
