Sponsor formal education of a poor girl

Impact

Empowering underprivileged girl children

The children of Nagla Mahadev, an urban slum located in Freeganj area of Agra, study at the government primary school in the area. However, most of the girl children of the area dropped out of school due to financial problems faced by their families and also conservative attitude of their parents towards girl child. Suman, live with her father, who can hardly arrange for two square meals a day. Suman has not been attending school for the past 5 months. She used to love attending classes and playing with her friends. Now she moves around lonely and sad. IDF team members met with girls like Suman and their parents and made them aware of the importance of educating girls. To ensure that the girls get a fair chance at education, IDF launched Honhaar Ladki Campaign, a sponsorship programme for girls. Through this program, education and school supplies like fees, bag, stationary, books etc are sponsored for girls. IDF has organized motivational counseling sessions for these girls and parents. Suman has a dream to be a teacher and teach children like her. Now, she gets up early in the morning goes to school regularly. Her parents are happy to see their daughter in the school.

Program Description

Indian Dreams Foundation (IDF) works with down-trodden and underprivileged communities in the slums of Agra with the objective of helping them maximize their potential and improve their lives. IDF works in the fields of education, health and hygiene and empowerment of women and children. It also strives to improve the awareness of these communities on health, education and human rights. IDF also has a focus on the girl child and her rights to equality, dignity and freedom. "Honhaar Ladki" (meaning "A Girl of Promise") is an education sponsorship program. The target beneficiaries of this program are adolescent girls, especially those from disadvantaged communities and low-income groups, who dropped out from studies due to economic problems. IDF provides financial and motivational support to such children. The main objective behind this program is to enable equal opportunity for access to quality education, especially at the secondary level. The beneficiaries are identified through a clearly-stated selection process at the beginning of the academic year. IDF sponsors the full-year education of the sponsored children. It also mentors the girls for their further education and helps them get enrolment in formal schools.

About The NGO

Indian Dreams Foundation
Indian Dreams Foundation Logo
Indian Dreams Foundation

The Indian Dreams Foundation (IDF) is dedicated to educate, empower and develop underprivileged communities by creating awareness on pressing issues such as importance of education and health. IDF’‘s journey began in 2004 when a group of like-minded people from various backgrounds decided to make a difference in the lives of those less privileged than them.

After IDF was established as an NGO on January 24th 2005, it has relentlessly worked in the spheres of education, health, and women empowerment in under-privileged communities. IDF strongly believes in the power of education as a tool of empowerment and uses it to break taboos and stereotypes.

This belief shapes all their programs and the work they do. Their flagship programs involve working with children in underprivileged communities with a view to enroll them in formal, informal or vocational education. These programs are supplemented by counselling sessions for families to highlight the importance of educating their children. Thus IDF adopts a grass-roots level approach where it takes into consideration both the children and the family, and endeavours to turn them towards education.
