Dream Football Program gives vulnerable children life coping skills that give them the ability to take on life's challenges confidently and become positive contributing members of this society.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

India has over 2 million children whose basic rights are not being met. These include orphans, abandoned and runaway children, street children & children living in slums. These children have limited or no access to opportunities for life skills development and without which they run a high risk of failing to rise above the vicious cycle of poverty and life on the street. The project will impact over 1500 children by 2009-12 and develop in them skills to access a better future.

How will this project solve this problem?

Each child/youth in the age-group of 8 -14 yrs will be a part of this program. The duration the project is 8 months.

Potential Long Term Impact

In 2012 - 2013, the project will help over 1800 children develop critical life skills using team sports like football to create a fun filled learning environment and what they learn on field can be directly transferred to life off the pitch.
