Promoting Quality Education-Dreams From The Slum Initiatives
Dreams from the Slums initiative is a development cum charity initiative for most vulnerable children living in remote and desolate communities using the 3point of approach which are;
Education – Empowerment – Mentoring
The organization which is also known as Reachout22 Project is for vulnerable children with the aim of reducing the number of children that are out of school by adopting children back to school and facilitating access to psychological support for children and youth with special needs. The project is presently running in 3 states and five desolate communities in Nigeria and in a remote village in Ghana.
The project gives aid/succour to Internally Displaced Persons (Children and youths) that ran away for their life during the Boko Haram Insurgence of which most of them have been at the displaced camp for more than 2years.
We run a quarterly free medical outreach for children who are beneficiaries of this project with worm expellers.
There mission is to ensure every child has access to quality basic education and promote a healthy self esteem.
What They Do
Dreams from the slum Initiative has been able to start and continue certain programmes since inception they include;
Free Weekend Literacy supplementary classes:
This is aimed to teach the kids basic literally skills,infuse values and morals into them so they have an healthy self esteem not allowing their locality to be an hindrance to their
future as children. This class compliments what they are being taught in school as we observed that majority of the children performs poorly.
They partner with other non-governmental organization whose major concern is on health outreach to the poor and less privileged such as Quick Medical Service and the Redcross to carry out a quarterly medical checkup for the children.
Feed A Child Scheme
They observed that most of the kids poor performance in school is due to the fact that they go to school on empty stomach, so we decided to start up a monthly feeding scheme by providing provisions, noodles and other food items are given to the parents/guardians on behalf of the kids.
Smart in School
This is designed to make the children be smart in school by providing new school uniforms for them, writing materials, socks , bags and shoe.
The organization tend to make provide food supplies for their families during festive seasons and we expose the kids by taking them to places they’ve always dreamt of visiting. Connecting them to role models etc. We believe in making them have a dream outside the slum by expanding their horizon while having fun.
This is an avenue where the top 20 kids that performs well academically are being assigned to a mentor who is either a celebrity/role model who will have a time out with them once in a month for a period of 12months. This is to inspire them to perform even more academically and to challenge others to dream more and achieve more.
