OUR APPROACH

AT THE CENTRE OF DREAM A DREAM’S APPROACH IS THE CHILD

In an ideal world, every young person would believe they have intrinsic value and the inner strength to overcome all adversity.

But this is achievable only if their closest influencers, including parents, teachers, role models also cheer the child on.

Beyond that, the immediate community of the child which includes schools, community centers, social groups needs to provide the right infrastructure for the child to flourish. And finally, the society at large, including state and central governments, the industry, police all have to be structured in a way that is inclusive, democratic, and fair.

THE ARC OF TRANSFORMATION

AOT is our unique framework that helps design and deliver life skills that empower personal and social change.

Based on Michael Mezirow’s approach to adult learning, the method was developed into a method of delivery by Partners for Youth Empowerment. Dream a Dream has further contextualized AOT to make transformative learning accessible to young people, especially those who live in adversity.

By integrating creative arts practices, it enables participants to face challenges with more courage, flexibility, creativity, and power.
