♥♥♥ OUR GOAL at FD is to help girls:
1. Feel empowered and inspired
2. Find their path
3. Have a safe space to express themselves
4. Learn skills from other awesome women in the community
5. Feel happy and uplifted
to nurture and celebrate the unique gifts of our girls and young women in a fun & uplifting way
to support the growth and flourishing of girls and women into healthy, confident, creative and compassionate custodians of our communities and planet
As a collective of mothers, sisters, daughters, nieces, aunts and friends, we have come together to unify the Future Dreamers vision.
We are aware of our responsibility, as a collective of diversely skilled women linked to a wider community, to provide support and guidance required for girls to not only thrive but also transition into healthy women. Adolescence is the locus of both our crisis and opportunity. At Future Dreamers we recognise the potency of this; the myriad of influences and modern-day challenges, questions and explorations that shape the forming individual. Always, but especially throughout this time, we are motivated to know our girls more deeply, to listen to them, support them and inspire them to find what makes their hearts sing. To offer them grounded yet imaginative, open-minded and creative perspectives on how they might choose to think, act, love, look and be. We believe that our young women hold within them great magic and unbridled potential to express, love and contribute to the world in their own valuable way.
