Malvern College will be hosting an Indian girls’ football team from 3-5th October. Their tour has been organised by the OSCAR Foundation (Organisation for Social Change, Awareness, and Responsibility), a not-for-profit organisation that works with young people and children living very challenging lives in the poorest communities across India. The girls will spend two days at Malvern College as part of their tour of the UK, experiencing new activities such as kayaking, climbing and hip-hop dancing, taking part in Art and Design workshops, playing Malvern College girls at football and taking part in a Leadership seminar led by Floyd Woodrow of the Compass for Life organisation.
OSCAR offers a unique programme that not only teaches sport to children and youths, but also helps them to understand the value of education. Over 3,000 children take part in the OSCAR programme of which over 1,200 are girls. OSCAR believes in creating an equal platform for all children to play football together, irrespective of gender, caste, religion or background. Trafficking, abuse, illegal early marriage and youth pregnancies are ongoing problems that affect young girls in India. OSCAR works tirelessly to help in the drive to prevent these forms of abuse.
To raise money pupils at Malvern College, led by Beatriz Cunningham, have been holding a variety of events including a house charity fair and a casual clothes day. They have created a MyDonate page, which is linked below.
