Life skills based model empowering 100,000 children
  • Crisis: 140 million of 300 million children in India come from vulnerable backgrounds facing psychosocial issues as they lack basic life skills. There is a 53% dropout rate between Std I to X, as just providing basic education doesn't address the psychological issues they face; this is where Dream A Dream steps in.
  • Programs: Children are the centre of all programs. i) After School Life Skills uses Sports and Arts to engage children and develop critical life skills. They have an attendance rate of 89%. ii) Career Connect Program equips 14-19 year olds with career awareness workshops, short-term modules in English, communication skills and internships. iii) Dream Teacher Development Program engages adults to deepen impact and unlock the potential of young people by using the life skills approach.
  • Outreach: 5,500 participants annually through After School Life Skills Program; 1,610 participants through Career Connect; 150 scholarships granted; 2,152 educators and teachers trained with 25 Partner schools; Annually 2,500 volunteers clock in 30,000 hours of engagement.
