Founded in 2016, the South Africa Dream Center provides a safe after-school tutoring and homework help program that enables kids to succeed academically. The children attending this program are from high-poverty settlements near Cape Town, South Africa. Their families have few resources and most kids, outside of programs likes the Dream Centre, do not finish high school.
Some kids are from refugee families who are learning a new language and culture. We currently have 31 children enrolled in this program. The Dream Centre partners with schools and parents to ensure the children remain on course with their academic studies and provides opportunities for them to develop their talents.
Your scholarship money will provide transportation, educational reinforcement materials, food (6,500 meals/snacks annually) and school supplies. Transportation is the biggest cost for the South Africa Dream Centre. We transport all the children from their school to the Dream Centre. In addition to academic support, we provide holistic learning opportunities for the kids through clubs for swimming, running, music and writing.
