Education remains the leading antidote to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger even as the world strives to achieve the Millennium Development Goal of providing universal primary education for every child/youth. Education provides lasting and effective solution that can help children and their families to escape from the cycle of poverty. It also represents a double investment – an investment in the individual and an investment in the future of the society.

In the bid to ensure that less privileged children & youths in the society gain access to qualitative education the Foundation initiated the “Project Dream”. This is a scholarship Management program aimed at providing educational opportunities for less privileged and vulnerable children who are intelligent and hardworking, but lack the financial ability to afford tertiary education.

The scholarship programme operates primarily for students from very poor background. So far four less privileged youths are on the scholarship program (2013), while an additional three will be added from the month of December 2014.
