Giving Children Wings to their Wings - report

Dream Football Program
Dream Football Program

We thank you for choosing to make a difference to the lives of our children. We are grateful for your support and want to share how your donation is been put to work!

We have been successful in scaling our Dream Football Program. The current strength of the program is 760 children, an increase from 516 from March 2010. We plan to scale the program to 1500 children by March 2011.

Children graduating from Dream Football Program, now youngsters, have started managing the programs in their centers. 19-yr old Revanna takes the initiative to show children inspiring sports-related movies and seeks ideas to motivate kids to play well and play as a team. 21-yr old Manjunath coaches boys from the shelter home where he grew up.

A recent validation of the quality, impact and potential of the Dream Football Program was the global membership to streetfootballworld (www.streetfootballworld.org) network. According to SFW, “We are convinced that Dream A Dream’s valuable work in the field of Development through Football, your networking commitment, and strong community support will enable Dream A Dream to make a tangible contribution to the network and its mission: to develop a centre of competence that interconnects and strengthens long-term football based social / development initiatives that transform the lives of disadvantaged individuals from around the world, increasing their opportunities and consolidating an environment of social change on a global scale.”

Thank you once again for believing and engaging in our work.
