Fifty percent of India’s population are under the age of 25 and, in a country with a school drop out rate of nearly 53%, there are an estimated 243 million young people looking for employment.

 

Since its inception in 1999, Dream A Dream’s mission has been to empower young people from vulnerable backgrounds. It provides young people who have experienced extreme adversity in their lives with comprehensive life skills and training.

 

Dream A Dream provides a support system for the children in the community with after-school programmes which use sports and arts to engage young people, help them develop critical life skills and give them the chance to give back to their communities. Communication skills, career guidance and awareness workshops, internships, scholarships, vocational training and jobs are also provided to participants between the ages of 14 and 19.
