OSCAR Foundation

About the Fundraiser

OSCAR Foundation (Organization for Social Change, Awareness and Responsibility) is a non-profit organization that, through football instills the value of education and empowers underprivileged children and youth with life skills to take responsibility of their community development.

Ashok Shankar Rathod along with two other founding members started The OSCAR Foundation in 2006. OSCAR runs 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’s young leaders act as role models and work to identify and tackle the barriers helping children and youth to reach their maximum potential.


To create a world that enables young people to become role models, to mobilize their communities for positive social change through sports


To encourage leadership, team work and education support to youths from economically and socially backward communities through football


To support children and youths to stay in school. To discover, develop and nurture young talent. To educate youth to become responsible citizens


OSCAR Programmes OSCAR runs three programmes to support children and youth to become responsible adults with healthy life style and positive values in their communities.

  • The Football Programme is aimed towards ages 5-22 who want to play football and at the same time learn the value of education. The football programme not only develops football skills but also encourages children to be regular in school and complete their education. 

    This programme is specially designed to address issues through football as per the need of the children and youth. It aims to teach them how to handle social issues and gain positive values. This programme also focuses on the issue of girl’s empowerment. 

    THE COMMUNITY PROJECT The main focus of the community project is to identify children & youths from the community and help them complete their education whilst ensure they are regularly attending. In this project OSCAR leaders work directly with the community and parents to create a meaningful and lasting impact. 

    THE SCHOOL PROJECT offers students a chance to enrol in the football program. It teaches them various skills in football along with helping them understand the importance of completing one’s homework and education. It deals with problems faced by teachers and directly works with schools for the development of children. 

    THE PARTNERSHIP PROJECT offers an opportunity to any NGO, club or company to tie up with OSCAR’s Football for Development Programme.


Education Programme

This programme aims to focus on providing educational help for children who are facing difficulties at performing well in school. We currently provide assistance to 400 children in the field of Hindi, English and Maths. The goal of the Educational Programme is to make children, youths and parents understand the value of education and the importance of after-school studies. Through this programme, students are able to reach their grade-level learning goals and succeed in their formal schooling. 

THE EDUCATION PROJECT provides tuition and extra classes in subjects like Hindi, English, Maths to help those children who are unable to perform well in their school. 

THE COMPUTER PROJECT provides children with the opportunity to learn basic computer skills. This will also provide children an opportunity to learn in a creative manner. 

THE SCHOLARSHIP PROJECT is for those students whose parents are from economically low backgrounds who may not be able to fund their education at a higher level (10th, 12th and for graduation) These students show the desire and passion to study and OSCAR helps them fulfill this dream.
