WHOOP WHOOP it is #GivingTuesday
To mark the biggest annual day of charitable giving globally, the OSCAR Foundation is raising funds for disadvantaged Indian girls living in the Mumbai slums. Lack of equipment and facilities creates a huge barrier which stops girls from taking part in sporting activities. OSCAR engages girls and boys in education using football as the tool and has one simple rule, No School, No Football. The Covid pandemic has disproportionately affected the girls, who are under pressure to drop out of education and take up poorly paid manual labour. Donations will help keep them on track. Once they drop out it will be hard to engage them again....so we need to act now.
£11 provides a girl in India with sanitary pads for one year.
"Periods don't stop for pandemics & the work to improve access to essential tampons, pads & reusables has never been more important." Monica Lennon MSP for Central Scotland. Only 36% of Indian girls have access to sanitary products.
Please support our Girls Empowerment programme and donate a set of sanitary pads for OSCAR Foundation girls.
