Empowering Girls as Community Leaders

WHY

While the world is progressing, the issue of gender bias is far from being resolved. And in India, it feels that the struggle has just begun. Girls, in India, face unprecedented discimination in all walks of life. Given an equal opportunity, they can shine, and outshine. Oasis believes in empowering girls to take on the world, choose their own path, and decide their own destiny. Special effort is put behind guiding and mentoring all the girls to express themselves and break barriers.

HOW

At Oasis, there are a number of programmes that are designed for girls. Saamarthya is one such project, meant to encourage and empower girls, and train them to excel in every aspect of life. Camps like Life Camps, Love Camps and Dream India Camps are organized for girls to be independent – financially, intellectually and emotionally. Oasis programmes work around Gender Sensitization & Equality, Self Defence and Leadership skills, with an aim to nurture future women leaders!

Above all, be the heroine of your life,
not the victim.

“My experience as facilitator was beyond imagination and overwhelming. I enjoyed Love, Independence & lots of affirmation given to children. I could see transformation in children in short span of the camp. Given the opportunity with love, faith and guidance, children are capable of shouldering responsibilities.”
