Here's how Jacqueline Fernandez took another step towards kindness with her foundation
With her YOLO Foundation, Jacqueline Fernandez interacted and played with children at the OSCAR Foundation, read on.
Mumbai: Jacqueline Fernandez is actively doing social and volunteering work amid the tough times when the entire nation faces second wave of coronavirus pandemic.
Jacqueline Fernandez had launched the YOLO (You Only Live Once) Foundation recently and have been lending a helping hand to help the one in need.
Taking to her social media, Jacqueline shared adorable pictures with a group of kids as she interacted with them, got onto the field to play football with them and even gave them gift packets. She noted down the details of her visit, writing, "One thing the pandemic has taught me is how important it is to reach out and help people as there are so many people out there desperate for a helping hand. I also learnt it doesn't take .ch.. sometimes a smile, sometimes some food, if you can do more then great for you! Team @jf.yolofoundation visited the Oscar Foundation this week. Ashok founded OSCAR Foundation in 2010. When he was growing up in Ambedkar Nagar, a slum community in Cuffe Parade, Mumbai, he saw many children in his community giving up their studies in search of money."
"He came up with a simple incentive, if children attend school, they can attend our football and life skills sessions. Using this philosophy, they reached out to over 3000 children in Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai and Yadgir (Karnataka). Through their football and education programmes, they've helped children stay fit and active and assist them in acquiring digital literacy through 6 computer centres across Mumbai. They provide leadership training to previous beneficiaries, too, so that they can start their football team, girls and boys, and mobilise their communities better so OSCAR can grow and be more effective."
"In my visit to Oscar Foundation @oscar_foundation along with Ashok, we all played football together, interacted with the kids and could feel the passion in them to play football and meanwhile bring about a change in their life. My team and I also visited the lab where these kids study and work on themselves.
We are extremely proud of the work Oscar Foundation does and are glad to be associated with them.
We only live once! Let'sLet's make this life worth it by helping others in need and sharing the #storiesofkindness of those around us! #spreadthelove #staysafe #yolo #helpothers"
