Dream School Foundation (DSF) works to ensure the right to quality education with overall development for Indian children and youth. This programme aims to reach hundreds of socio economically deprived students in Bangalore (India) and support them from high school to a rewarding career in their chosen field. We facilitate mainstream education by providing school/college choice, financial assistance, regular academic coaching/mentoring at our centres & hone their skills at DSF Finishing School
Indian public education has undergone a lot of changes in the last decade. While most children have access to school, quality and equity issues plague the system which affects the lives of millions of children in these schools. Most of them are also first generation learners with lack of guidance at home. The challenge is to motivate them, ensure continuity in their education, create an atmosphere of knowledge acquisition & development, maximise their potential and enhance their employability.
The programme identifies students from socio economically vulnerable communities and supports them financially to enrol to schools/institutions of their choice. The DSF Education & Development centre equips them further through regular academic coaching, mentoring & soft skill development. In the later stages, DSF Finishing School will hone their skills to maximise employability in their chosen field. This programme works in close conjunction with parent community and civil society.
We believe that education is the critical instrument that can empower the students to reach their full potential and support the creation of an egalitarian world. Creation of sustainable livelihood options ensures higher human development indicators for the recipient family and surrounding community. The ripple effect will have positive influence on many others in the same league. The facilities and resources created will continue to cater to several hundred recipients over the years to come.
