न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते।
ज्ञान के समान पवित्र इस संसार में कुछ नहीं है।।
There is nothing more pure in this world than knowledge(Jyana)
Connecting Dreams Foundation (CDF) - Bharati College is a non-profit organization, a youth led entrepreneurship initiative to create a change. CDF works along the lines of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as defined by the United Nations. CDF, through its changemaker network, uses entrepreneurial action to empower people to improve their livelihoods in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable way, thus, converting their dreams into reality.
With an enthusiasm to impact the lives of hundreds and thousands of people from the impoverished section of the society, Connecting Dreams Foundation, Bharati College was started in September, 2020 with a total of 8 team members. In the initial phase, we started our journey with Project Sambhav wherein we visited the shankar garden slum area near our college, where we collected dreams of young minds.
CDF encourages young minds with their ideas to develop community outreach projects that result in a holistic upliftment of the marginalized section of the society. Our ultimate motive is to bring forth education and social entrepreneurialism to as many unprivileged students and people as we can.
Connecting Dreams Foundation Bharati chapter aims to empower youth and women in rural India through connectivity and entrepreneurship.
CDF Bharati Chapter's ultimate motive is to bring forth education and enlighten as many unprivileged students as we can, spread mental health awareness and help people to cope up with difficult situations in life mentally by connecting them with therapists for free of cost and social entrepreneurialism for the women who have the eagerness to reshape their career and future.
Commenced with an aim to bridge the gap between the streets and schools by connecting unprivileged children to their basic right i.e education. The team of CDF Bharati has been dispensing education and development skills to the enthusiastic young minds from areas of all over Delhi by connecting with them virtually. We have been providing online classes to the students of classes 1st - 10th. We already have a handful of 200+ students whom we are teaching under project Sambhav and planning to grow our reach to many more children who are not elite with the proper resources to study. Furthermore, we have successfully organized 6 career counseling workshops in collaboration with UPAY NGO, wherein we guided the students of UPAY on stream selection, math tricks and on many more interesting topics. We believe that education is just not preparation for life; education is life itself.
