Failure is just a stepping stone, isn’t it?

Arbiya Banu,17, is part of our Computer Training Programme in Bangalore. Before joining our course, Arbiya struggled with her studies and failed in 10th grade. Determined to do better, she took up our training course to learn computer skills while she waited to take up the exam again. Arbiya was very proactive and had a good zeal for learning. She always set an example of finishing work and assignments on time.

In partnership with Phapa Technologies and Indus Action, we initiated an employment-training programme to help in identifying communities for Covid Releif Drive. Arbiya volunteered first to be a part of the programme. She completed all the training modules, both online and offline. She did not only fair well in her training but helped in reaching out to hundreds of beneficiaries across the city for the drive.

Arbiya’s responsibilities were to call, verify, consolidate and update the information of the beneficiaries. She reached out to unorganised workers and assisted them in filling their applications online for the government relief. She earned stipend for her services too!  While working out of her comfort zone and exploring new opportunities, Arbiya has also successfully passed out of 10th grade. Now, she is on to her next adventure of beginning college education and is also looking to continue work with us in our other initiatives.

Arbiya says, “I am thankful to be a part of Oasis. Through their programmes, I was able to build my self-esteem and believe in my ability to overcome the challenges in life. I want to create a successful career for myself and support my family.”

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
