DREAM's Impact

The DREAM Project provides more than 800,000 hours of quality education to more than 7,500 children through 14 different programs across 27 communities in the Dominican Republic. In addition, DREAM programs indirectly benefit thousands more each year by reaching our students' family members, social networks and their extended communities.

OUR DREAM

All children and youth in the Dominican Republic will have equal opportunities to learn and realize their full potential through transformative education programs that combat the effects of poverty.

We believe that learning changes lives. Our programs extend from early childhood through young adulthood, empowering at-risk children and youth to create a better future for themselves and their families through high quality education, youth development, and community enrichment.

We ensure successful results through careful analysis, a commitment to learning, and continuous improvement. Our innovative approach effectively addresses local needs and can be replicated throughout high poverty global communities.


What we do

The school system in the Dominican Republic produces the lowest educational outcomes in Latin America, and more than one-third of children in the country live in families that survive on less than $5 per family member per day.

  Early Childhood Education   Did you know that over 85% of our brains develop before 5 years of age, but just a fraction of education spending is put into these formative years? We believe that starting early provides the best educational foundation for a lifetime of learning.
