Dream a Dream empowers young people from vulnerable backgrounds to overcome adversity and flourish in a fast changing world, using a creative life skills approach. At the centre of Dream a Dream’s approach is the child, who has the potential to overcome adversity and develop life skills. Dream a Dream's programmes are unique to every young person it works with and use innovative, experiential methods to engage young people from vulnerable backgrounds. The organisation provides non-traditional educational opportunities designed to allow these young people to explore, innovate and build important life skills so that they are equipped to make informed decisions, solve problems, think critically and creatively.


Dream a Dream works directly with young people through its After School Life Skills and Career Connect programmes. The After School Life Skill programme uses Sport and Art as a medium to engage and develop critical life skills. These programmes serve as innovation labs, where new approaches to life skills development are introduced, demonstrated, documented and fed back into the larger framework for re-imagining learning for young people in the country. The Teacher Development programme taps the creative potential of adults like teachers, youth workers, community workers and facilitators so that they are equipped with skills to develop life skills amongst young people they work with.


Adding further credibility to the work of the organisation are the accreditations it has received from well-known institutions. For example, Dream a Dream was recognised as a Champion in the Re-imagine Learning Challenge hosted by Ashoka and Lego Foundation (2015), featured in the DASRA Report Power of Play that focussed on organisations doing innovative work in the field of Sport for Development and awarded the New Skills in Sports Instruction at Educasport World Forum (2013) as well as the Champions of Guidestar India – Platinum Level in the Guidestar India NGO Transparency Awards (2016).


Dream a Dream continues in its endeavour to empower millions of young people with life skills so that they can flourish in the 21st century.
