We at Dream A Dream believe education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. It's crucial for young people to be equipped with literacy, numeric skills and life skills. It is these skills and abilities, inculcated in childhood, that make us successful as adults. They help people build a meaningful life for themselves and become productive members of the society. Young people from vulnerable backgrounds don't get opportunities for developing Life Skills.
Dream A Dream's programmes use innovative, interactive methods to engage with young people from vulnerable backgrounds. We provide non-traditional educational opportunities designed to allow them to explore, innovate and build important life skills. These include: 1. Interpersonal skills such as teamwork, communication, negotiation and coping skills. 2. Cognitive skills such as decision-making, problem solving and critical thinking. 3. Creativity, confidence, self-awareness
We are always looking to extend our programs' reach and empower more young people. We have a 5-year plan (2016-2021) to scale the impact of our work. We aim to: Empower 500,000 young people by training 15,800 adults in Dream a Dream's innovative Life Skills Approach. To measure the improvements in life skills amongst young people, we use the Dream Life Skills Assessment Scale-the first impact measurement tool in the world to measure improvement in life skills among disadvantaged children
