Indian Dreams Foundation (IDF) was formed in 2005 in Agra with a mission to impact the lives of less privileged people, enabling them to maximize their potential and change their lives. IDF aims to build and strengthen sustainable individual, family, institutional, and community initiatives for overall development through partnership at all levels.

IDF works primarily in the fields of education, health, and women’s empowerment. IDF provides non formal primary education through their Dreams Learning Centres and formal education by initiating school reforms programs through their Adopt a School program. IDF is addressing development issues through awareness drives in rural communities and urban slums, and by providing education to empower young people.

IDF runs the following campaigns:

  • Education Campaign:  IDF runs the Dreams Learning Centre, which is a non-formal education centre. The centre targets those children who have dropped out of schools or girls from minority communities. Through the program, IDF aim to build the children’s confidence, social skills and their academic ability so that they may ultimately enrol in formal education.
  • Education Sponsorship and Mentoring Program: IDF launched the ‘Honhar Ladki’ education sponsorship program to sponsor girls’ education in formal schools. The target beneficiaries are adolescent girls from disadvantaged communities who drop out of school due to financial or family-related constraints. During the year IDF sponsored 107 girls in this program.
  • School Reforms Program: This program was started to provide quality education in the children from rural and urban government schools. IDF aim to develop government schools in Modern School so that they are on par with the best run schools in the rural and urban areas in term of best infrastructure, academic performance and healthy environment.
  • Meri Muskan: This is a girls’ awareness campaign that focuses on adolescent girls’ rights and awareness issues. During the program, the girls were provided training in handicrafts, embroidery, dancing, drama and basic life skills trainings.

IDF is accredited by Credibility Alliance with Minimum Norms and Give India. They have been granted with Special Consultative Status by the United Nations (ECOSOC). They also have full membership with the Conference of NGOs (CONGO), USA and are accredited with the Silicon Valley Foundation, USA.
