Campaign to Prevent Suicides
by Students

WHY

Every year, under the pressure of studies, or due to the fear of failure in academics, almost 10,000 students commit suicide in India. If we count the number of students who have not committed the act, but only thought of it, the number would be in lakhs. Are exam results more important than the lives of our children? When the marks-based education system is utterly failing, Oasis Aisi Ki Taisi (To hell with it) Movement works towards saving the lives of thousands of students.

HOW

In 2017, Oasis published a booklet called ‘Exam Ki Aisi Ki Taisi’ (To hell with Exams). Soon after the publication, Oasis began with 1 -hour sessions for school students who are to appear in Board Exams. In these sessions, trained volunteers interact with students about dealing with pressure of studies and exams, and not to be disheartened by results. Students understand the importance of hard work, and promise to focus on their talents, hidden potential. Series of sessions, awareness rallies & events under the movement aim to save lives.

We’re alive for a reason.
Never ever give up.

“I was very apprehensive about doing my first session of AKT. I worried that the students would not listen to me. However, I felt a sense of happiness and satisfaction when I interacted with the children. It is an experience I will never forget. Just knowing that I might have helped one child to feel less anxiety and stress is satisfying.”

“This project turned out to be very useful to children. It gave me satisfaction of helping those children who feel suffocated under tension, who go into depression or even think of suicide. With such sessions many children can be saved.”
