Indian Young Leadership Development Program
Identifying and Nurturing Social Leaders
Our education system produces experts in various fields but not good enough hearts to deal with problems of life, society or country at large. Given an opportunity and guided well, children and youths have the potential to resolve not only their own problems but also have the heart and mind to contribute towards society. All they need is an opportunity to bring out their inherent leadership qualities.
Misaal Project to spot, inspire, prepare, guide and support teenagers, youths, teachers and citizens. It is for all those who wish to bring about a positive cultural change in the society and country at large. The promising leaders in the Misaal Project are screened at three levels – Written Expression, Group Dialogue & Field Project. Those who complete all the levels get Leadership Education, Greatness Course, Project Assistance and many other gifts from Oasis which help them be Change Agents.
Be the change you want to see in

you have an obligation to be one.

Reflections from the young participants and facilitators
“I was not serious about my life. Misaal gave me direction. While writing essay I read many things related to ‘Gender Discrimination’. I was really disappointed with the fact that women are not given importance & respect they deserve. I resolved to do something for them. Thanks to Oasis.”
“It was my childhood dream to work for our country, which is being fulfilled. The Misaal program was very inspiring for me and I learnt a lot. It increased my confidence. I am happy and wish the program continues and keeps on improving our country.”
"Misaal has helped me to know what my own society thinks about me. I got new initiative to do some activities every Sunday with the little ones. Big thank you to Oasis for the opportunity.”
"Misaal is not competition for me. It is a process through which I came into contact with my potentials. If we want to change our country, then someone should start, right? And Misaal gave that platform to serve my country.”
"Before Misaal, my dreams were restricted to my home and into its four walls. Misaal gave me opportunity and I got courage to work upon my dreams and I could bring out them.”
"For the first time I did something different in my life and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I realized that change in society doesn't come by just writing and speaking; we need to bring it by actually acting upon it.”
"Misaal is a beautiful project for me as a leader. There was deep satisfaction that we are searching leaders for tomorrow who are going to contribute to make this world a better place to live in. Through this Misaal Project, we built a self-motivating team and everlasting memories.”
"I realized that if we trust children and set them free they do understand their responsibilities. I could sense the genuine concern for the nation in each child. I saw that children blossomed like a beautiful flower after the Group Dialogue. 2-3 hours can make such a huge impact!”
"Misaal Project was a testing time for me till the end. School, Tuition, Project work and meetings – balancing was most difficult. My relationship strained with family but when in the end winners shared their excitement & happiness, I felt I did a good job and was very happy.”
"Excellent and much needed activity to build country in given situation. Feeling proud to contribute myself in this activity. Need to intensify as these young kids have fire and we need to cultivate & to make them guided missile to hit their own goal.”
