Catalyst & Executive Director Message
Audacious Dreams aims to Inspire, Inform, Enable, Engage &Empower grassroots young people and created a global platform with a bunch of opportunities for the upliftment of potential youth. We have empowered an uncountable number of young people across the nation through various project and programme. Last year we have organized a variety of programme in both urban and rural areas with help of our enthusiastic team. Really appreciate our team, they have worked without margin of time and they have given their full energy and passion to achieve our goal. When we started this financial year we have fixed our target to reach minimum 2500 young people through our challenge India programme. At the end of the year, we really wondered and amazed to see the results. We have reached more than around 2000 adolescent young people with high retention rate. Also, we have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with educational institutions and Non-Profit organizations across India. With this report, I thank all of our stakeholders, Partners, Volunteers, Interns and our lovable hard-working employees. Without your support, we can’t able achieve this. On behalf of Audacious Dreams and Trusty chairs, I thank everyone for this great success
We feel proud and happy to see the quarterly report; it’s all because of the support of our Fellowship members, stakeholders, Partners, Volunteers, our team members, and our lovable management team. Whenever we saw our footprints and scroll downed our history of last year that gives special boot up and enthusiasm.
With warm regards
