When a child is born, a dream is born. Children come with various gifts for their lives, their parents, community and the world. However due to various social, cultural and economic factors not all children manage to arrive at the desired destinations. Developing urban centers brings children from various social and economic backgrounds living and sharing. In this regard; it is very easy for children to adapt to another culture or having their dream crushed. Some Children has been negatively or positively affected by family relations, media, teachers’ environment around them etc. Dreaming Child is project aiming to discover and explore children’s dreams and how they can possibly be supported to realize their full potential. The project will include four aspects:- Explore: Exploring various dreams among the children (Some kids want to be doctors, farmers, politicians etc. Understanding: Try to understand factors associated with their dreams, are they real, how they are walking in their dreams etc. Challenge: what challenges or limitation are they facing in realizing their dreams? Act: Possible support and actions required from Parents, Teachers and others in supporting the children to rich at their higher point.
