WHY

Oasis firmly believes that all children are good and uniquely talented. They are always eager to learn important things about life. However, the evils of comparison, competition, and cramming suffocate their tremendous creativity. Is it possible for young minds to learn being responsible and fair when they are given complete freedom? The answer is YES. Oasis Dream India Camps have proved this time and again. If entrusted with freedom, children are capable of solving their problems creatively. It also empowers their independence, decision-making ability with responsibility.

HOW

Oasis Dream India Camps are 8-10 days of residential camps for children & teenagers. The camps are also an ideal space for adults who wish to taste & explore the impact of Democratic Education. It is a camp that is organized, run and participated by children through a parliamentary process. An environment of Love and Happiness builds their self esteem and confidence. It is just amazing to observe that in just one week, a diverse group of children is transformed into a responsible and soulful community!

Rather than standing or speaking for children,
we need to stand with children speaking for
themselves.

“Children showed courage of accepting their own mistakes in community. They put their own points and views without hurting the dignity of other fellow members. This is what they need the most but lack completely at home and school most of the time. It was strengthening my belief that there is nothing to be taught to kids. All we need to do is to give nice atmosphere.”
