Summary

Our After School Life Skills Programme uses Sport (Football) as an experiential medium to empower young people aged 8-15 from vulnerable backgrounds. These vital skills, such as interpersonal skills, cognitive skills, creativity, and confidence, give children the tools they need to thrive. Our After School sessions have impacted the lives of 2,000 children each year, and we need your help to reach even more.

Challenge

As per the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation study (2012), a staggering 40% of children drop out of school between grade 5 and 7. The Annual State of Education Report (2014) stated that 51.9% children of grade 5 could not read a grade 2 text. At Dream a Dream, we believe the above are symptoms of a deeper challenge around Child Adversity,

Solution

Dream A Dream India believes that for young people to overcome disadvantage and succeed in an unpredictable future they need a caring, safe and fun environment in which to develop life skills that build resilience, help them to make positive life choices and become productive, contributing members of society. The Life Skills program using sports fosters the right environment for young people to thrive.

Long-Term Impact

Every year the project engages over 2000 young people in the 8-15 age group from 25 partner schools in Bangalore. 8 out of 10 children show an improvement in life skills every year measured using the Dream Life Skills Assessment Scale, a standardized scale used by Dream a Dream. We aim to reach over 5000 children annually through 2021 in both our Arts and Football Life Skills Programs.
