WHO WE ARE
DREAM was founded in 2002 by a group of visionary volunteers and donors that, after visiting a public school in Cabarete with no running water or electricity, were compelled to improve Latin America’s poorest performing education system. They established both a US and DR non profit organization to create change. From acclaimed author Julia Alvarez and Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Díaz, to the first Dominican born member of Congress, Adriano Espaillat, our board has consisted of artists, athletes, educators and philanthropists leading the charge to educate all Dominican youth. We build and run schools together with communities; we establish quality educational programs, and we stay and work with the communities until they are willing and able to do it on their own. This is what sets us apart from other organizations. Our DREAM is that 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 for more than 8,000 youth throughout our 27 DREAM communities.

We offer the hope of a better quality of life for present and future generation of Dominican children by greatly improving their educational opportunities.
