The TT Dream Building Fund is an ITTF Foundation annual call for projects aiming to select projects it will support for a period of 1-3 years. The selected projects all identify a specific local issue they wish to transform, linked to one or more UN SDG targets. All the projects supported through the Dream Building Fund focus on the social and educational roles of Table Tennis as a tool to improve an aspect of human welfare in their local reality. The expected impact results for the beneficiaries of these projects are therefore, not based on Table Tennis performance but rather the improvement of a targeted aspect of their local reality, through the use of Table Tennis.
The Dream Building Fund is based on the idea of partnership where every stakeholder contributes to the success of the project. This support is not solely financial costs but includes value in kind support for, resources, expertise, knowledge, equipment etc. The purpose of the support offered by the Dream Building Fund is to measure the impact of projects, learn from them and gradually support further projects which are sustainable (with an exit strategy).
