Dream A Dream was founded in November 1999. The twelve founder dreamers were Arjun Dugal, Brinda Jacob, Neha Shah, Pramod Ramprasad, Rahul Mathur, Rashmi Bajaj, Sandeep Wadhwa, Shweta Kothari, Supreeta Sampath, Vipul Chhabria, Vishal Talreja & Vishwa Prasad.
Dream A Dream empowers children from vulnerable backgrounds by developing life skills while at the same time sensitizing the community through active volunteering leading to a non-discriminatory society where unique differences are appreciated.
Dream A Dream provides children from vulnerable backgrounds with non-traditional educational opportunities designed to allow them to explore, innovate and build important life skills. These life skills are fundamental to child/youth development and to the successful transition into adulthood and becoming fully functioning and productive members of our society.
Dream A Dream programs allow children to develop:
· Interpersonal skills including teamwork, communications, negotiation and coping skills.
· Cognitive skills such as decision-making, problem solving and critical thinking.
· Creativity, confidence, self-awareness and a passion for learning.
They have empowered over 3000 children referred from 12 NGO partners, through an active and enthusiastic base of 1500 volunteers in Bangalore, participating with a professional and skilled Dream Team who works under the guidance of a strong, committed and dynamic Board.
Vishal Talreja, Director & Founder Member adds "We came together because we thought we could make a difference in a very small way. None of us realized the power we were unleashing - The Power of One. We didn't know how far we would take Dream A Dream, but what we did know was that our lives would never be the same again and we would greatly impact the lives of a few children."
