Education is the key to change the world. It reduces poverty, decreases racism, eliminates gender inequality, prevents needless deaths, and most importantly fosters peace. Yet, many do not have basic Education. Only Education can change the world. Nelson Mandela, one of my heroes, advocates Education as the most powerful weapon one can use to change the world.

স্বপ্নযাত্রা আম্বালা ফাউন্ডেশনের প্রতিষ্ঠাতা, নির্বাহী পরিচালক ও রেডিও বিক্রমপুর ৯৯.২ এফ এম এর চেয়ারম্যান জনাব আরিফ সিকদার এর একটি স্বপ্ন-উদ্যোগ যা  পিছিয়ে পড়া ও দরিদ্র জনগোষ্ঠীর সন্তানদের সুষ্ঠু ও প্রকৃত শিক্ষার দায়িত্ব নিয়ে ঐ জনগোষ্ঠীর অর্থনৈতিক, সামাজিক ও রাজনৈতিক উন্নয়ন করতে সচেষ্ট হবে। একটি সুশিক্ষায় শিক্ষিত সন্তান তার পরিবারের জন্য একটি মূল্যবান সম্পদ। কারো অর্থনৈতিক উন্নয়নের জন্য সরাসরি তাকে আর্থিক সহযোগীতা দিলে সেটি টেকসই হওয়ার সম্ভাবনা কম কিন্তু ঐ পরিবারের কোন সন্তানকে উপযুক্ত শিক্ষায় শিক্ষিত করে তুলতে পারলে তা শুধু ঐ পরিবারের অর্থনৈতিক উন্নয়নেই শুধু ভূমিকা রাখবে না, তাদের সামাজিক মর্যাদা বৃদ্ধি করবে ও দেশের জন্যও তা হবে এক একটি সম্পদ।

স্বপ্নযাত্রা একটা নৌকা যেখানে আমরা সবাই সহযাত্রী। আমাদের সবার লক্ষ একটাই স্বপ্নপুরে পৌঁছানো। সুবিধাবঞ্চিত, দরিদ্র পরিবারের শিশু কিশোরেরা আমাদের স্বপ্ন। আরিফ সিকদার নৌকার নাবিক, অভিভাবক, শিক্ষক ও অন্য সংশ্লিষ্টরা মাঝি। এটা আমাদের সবার এক স্বপ্নযাত্রা যেনো সুষ্ঠভাবে আমাদের কাংখিত স্বপ্নপুরে আমরা পৌঁছাতে পারি। এই স্বপ্নপুর হলো এক সুখী সমৃদ্ধ দেশ। আমরা শুধু দেশে নয়, এই স্বপ্নযাত্রা নিয়ে যেতে চাই দেশ থেকে বিশ্বে, বহুদূর।
