I can study well too!

I love playing with my friends but I could not study like them. I had difficulty reading and writing on my own and there was no one to help me at home. My constant fear was that my friends will make fun of me if I don’t get good marks. I did my best in everything, but I was not able to concentrate in class. I felt alone.   


After joining Oasis’ special education programme, the tutors gave me individual attention as I learned the basics of reading and writing, and tried to identify names and words. Most importantly, they helped me study mathematics and science. I am now starting to follow what my teachers teach in class. This gives me hope that I can do well in my studies, just like my friends!

Dear Partners & Supporters,

As we are heading towards the end of 2020, it’s good to look ahead and think about what the new year may unveil.

But first, let’s take a quick look back. 2020 was quite a year for all of us. We are grateful that we were quickly able to respond to the COVID-19 situation and provide relief aid to over 3000 affected families across Chittoor, Chennai, Mumbai/Thane and Bangalore. We also went ahead with the Mukthi Bike Challenge and even launched the Madras Fuse online portal. The year also brought with it other big challenges but with the boards’ complete support Oasis India is geared for compliance as we enter the new fiscal year.

I would like to start with a huge thank you to all members of the committee of management, sub-committee, and society members – Thank you for all your wonderful contributions towards the growth and success of our mission. We strive to put our communities at the heart of everything we do and we sincerely would like to thank all our sensitive donors, front line staff, the many change agents and volunteers for their trust, support and excellent cooperation with us.

All our staff love what they are doing and our beneficiaries can feel that in every interaction. I wish that we continue to be challenged by our mission – to work in an inclusive, integrated, empowering and comprehensive way so that all people experience wholeness and fullness of life, and guided by our Vision – for community, a place where everyone is included making a contribution and reaching their fullest potential.

I wish you and your families a joyous, peaceful and restful festive season and all the best for the New Year 2021.
