Santosh Bhavan is located in Nallasopara East on Palghar Dist  after toll Naka. It is also known as Hawai Pada and more specifically known by locations or lanes in the area. We are currently working in Santhosh Bhavan Nagar. In this area, one of the most poverty-stricken parts is Azad Nagar.

In Azad Nagar, the community of migrants live on a hillock that’s hidden. Their occupation is mainly begging and selling toys. These families live in poor conditions, with barely enough income to have one meal a day. The children in this community lack basic education and are not sent to schools.  There are many children who drop out due to poverty or the lack of awareness on education among parents. There is also no safety for children in these communities as they are left unattended and are at high-risk of being trafficked or abused. Many women from the red-light areas have moved into Nalasopara where their children’s education and daily activities are affected. They are often see loitering the community unattended. This is also the case in the other parts of the community. The sanitation here is also an issue to be addressed as the community people suffer with no water supply or bathroom facilities.

By setting up a hub in the center of this communities, we seek to achieve our vision of creating a vibrant, healthy community where people not only expereience transformaton of self but also work towards the transformation of their community. We hope to especially impact the lives of children and make sure they have their right to education and are able to positively contribute to their communities.

Our main activities include:

  • After-school Programme
  • Informal Education classes
  • Basic Computer & IT classes
  • Sports – Football & Kabbadi

Dear Partners & Supporters,

 Greetings from Oasis India!

I would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year! As we step in 2022, we thank you for what you have helped us accomplish this past year.

Oasis India has accomplished 27 successful years of empowering women and children in India. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful support and partnership that we have shared over the years. Even though we faced a great global distress in the past years, we have come out stronger. As we begin celebrating this season of joy and peace, I would like to thank you for your support and love towards Oasis India.

My sincere appreciation to the Board (Committee of Management) for their guidance and a special thank you to our funding partners. We are very grateful to our institutional donors, Mukthi Bike Challenge network & riders, volunteers, sponsors, donors, 500 club donors, community partners and everyone who has continued to support our work through donations, volunteering and professional services. You all make us who we are and we will never lose sight of that. Our teams in the field who work directly with the beneficiaries have gone above and beyond their call of duty in 2021 and have left me so deeply humbled by their self-sacrificing efforts and commitment.

You will be delighted to know that in 2021, we have received our Platinum certification from GuideStar India for one year. That makes Oasis India one of the selected 100 non-profits attaining the highest Transparency and Quality Standards. We are on track, making all necessary arrangements for our FCRA renewal. We have also received 12AB and 80G renewal for the year. Our biggest accomplishment this year has been the successful launch of our new hub at North East in Churachandpur, Manipur to help families in alternative skill training and holistic development of children, leading to a developed and socially conscious community. Mukthi Bike Challenge 2021 was nothing short of amazing and the different editions in the various cities and countries helped us to get the word out about human trafficking to people around the globe.

Thank you all for supporting the work of Oasis India and helping us make a difference in our community. Your dedication is what inspires each and every one of us. This season, I wish you all the best and success in life as we head towards 2022! Be blessed.

With Regards,
Mangneo Lhungdim
