'Dream Accelerator'- an initiative by Save the Children that engages, empowers and inspires children with the potential to propel change has been successfully piloted in seven states of Northern and Eastern India. After the successful pilot in Jammu and Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar and Assam, the programme is now extending to six more states in West and South regions.
The pilot supported nine social change projects led by nine child leaders and 53 children have been trained in six different modules. The pilot reached more than 1500 children and 9700 community people including parents and other stakeholders. The success gave way to partnerships with organisations like Yuwaah, the youth wing of UNICEF, Nine is Mine and 6 champions selected for SMILE fellowship by Pravah.
As it moves to the second phase across six states- Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Odisha, Rajasthan and Maharashtra, we have identified 72 children to work with. This includes the participatory training module and the opportunity for 4 champions to lead thier own projects.
