“Helping People To Help Themselves Grow.” The slogan of Building Dreams Foundation speaks for the objectives of the foundation and the core values upon which it is built.
Building Dreams Foundation (BDF) promotes the social development of disadvantaged children and communities. The NGO’s mission is to serve the most vulnerable populations in India, poor children and adolescents. They focus on provision of healthy and adequate food, quality education, protection of the Environment and empowerment of communities.
Considering the evolving nature of today’s education system, only academic education cannot enlighten a child. The “Doorstep After-School Education” program offers extra curriculum activities that help to ignite the imagination of the children.
Programmes such as Digi Ed and Back to School ensure quality education for all and projects such as Udaan, help the children and youth to identify their suitable career streams.
According to reports by UNICEF, around 3 million children die every year due to hunger. Joining the fight against world hunger, BDF has initiated programmes such as community fridge and zero food wastage and has served 420000 meals till date.
In an attempt to save the environment from further deterioration, the NGO organises plantation and cleanliness drives and also educated people on ways to reuse materials by activities such as best out of waste.
The NGO tries to initiate conversations and spread awareness about menstrual hygiene through a programme called ‘pad for all.’
Staying true to the values underlying BDF of equality, critical thinking and mutual respect and by implementing programmes for the benefit of all stakeholders of society, the organisation aims to prepare people in a way where they can become productive members of the society who serve as role models to inspire others within their communities.
