The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.
- Mahatma Ghandi
Dare 2 Dream is a South Australian not-for-profit organisation established by a group of individuals who share this belief, and who are inspired to generate change. Our organisation strives to empower and improve quality of life for the most disadvantaged communities in the developing world and in Australia. Our name (Dare 2 Dream) reflects our vision: to make dreams of a better future become a reality for disadvantage children and adults.
Whilst Dare 2 Dream was officially founded in 2011, the organisation has been assisting projects and programs to aid the most underprivileged children and adults in India for over five years. Support began in 2007, when a relationship was established with the Indian Centre for Integrated Development (ICID), based in Nagpur, in the central state of Maharashtra. The founding of Dare 2 Dream has formalised this support.
Through significant fundraising efforts, and the generosity of many, assistance has been provided to the ICID, to rebuild the focal point of the organisation – ‘Yuva Jyothi’ (‘Light of Youth’ in Hindi) a home for orphaned and abandoned children. Dare 2 Dream has additionally aided a number sustainable development projects and programs in the slum communities of Nagpur and Bangalore (the capital city of the state of Karnataka).
Through empowering communities with knowledge, skills and resources, and particularly through the support of self-help projects and programs, Dare 2 Dream now aims to assist globally, and locally, in achieving sustainable improvements in quality of life for disadvantaged children and adults.
Dare 2 Dream’s vision is make the dreams of a better future become a reality for disadvantaged children and adults.
