About 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 our programs and the work we do. Our flagship programs involve working with children in underprivileged communities with a view to enroll them in formal, informal or vocational education.
