DREAMS is designed as a research-based intervention program. To recognize the effectiveness of outreach, our research wing conducts in-depth analyses before and after the implementation of each project. Regular feedback collection, focus group discussions and impact studies constitute the primary database. Furthermore, in order to assess the impact of these diverse interventions, the research wing attends to  the accounts of stakeholders across different cultural groups.

The extent of research may inevitably include the efficacy of youth empowerment programs and prospective research articles may be published in peer-reviewed journals.  We also promote research symposiums, conferences and collaborative research on youth empowerment as an endeavor to contribute to the larger society. The research wing is headed by Dr Anuradha Sathyaseelan.
