Dreamweaver provides THREE areas of service:
Dreamweaver has vision to end poverty around the world through strategic efforts in education, healthcare, and compassionate community development programs. The mission of Dreamweaver recognizes in order to end poverty; the policy discussions and programs created must fulfill a critical and necessary component. We must create and dedicate ourselves to empowering people to raise their own standards and become self-sustaining. Billions of dollars have been invested in poverty alleviation programs and progress has been made.
But we are still woefully far from helping the 80% of the population who lives on less than $10/day and the poorest who live on less than $1.25/day.
Dreamweaver’s Mission is:
To Help The Needy Become The Needed
When people move from a place of being needy to a condition of being needed, valued, and wanted, dramatic change is possible. It is recognized by many poverty experts that the clutches of poverty are not only physical lack of resources and opportunity, but are much more. When consulted and asked to express what poverty means to the people who are unable to escape its grip, they echo words of despair, sadness, and shame. Statements like, “I feel like I don’t count!” “I am worthless!” “I’m ashamed I cannot feed my children!” are words many say and feel. When we counter these bleak and sorrowful emotional realities with new hope and ways to create a place of being needed, poverty alleviation becomes a possible reality.
Dreamweaver has a long and successful history of dramatic accomplishment in East Africa working with the Maasai tribes of Kenya and Tanzania. Started by Mr. and Mrs. Ken Taylor, missionaries in Kenya, Dreamweaver created models of care for communities in rural Kenya and within Nairobi. The Taylors had a vision to lead a movement of change that would include teaching Biblical principles, starting churches, creating educational opportunities, and improving the health outcomes for thousands. As they developed strong bonds and relationships with local Kenyan people, they recognized a need for more advanced education in the poorest districts of Kenya.
Thus, they went on a quest to acquire the credentialing and funding to develop The Kimana School of Leadership and Professional Studies. Located in rural Kimana, Kenya, in the shadows of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the college has become an icon of HOPE for students who want to change the economy and direction of Africa. As well, Dreamweaver has been afforded the opportunity to also build on its 10-acre campus, the most comprehensive multidisciplinary hospital in the region. When completed, the Kilimanjaro Mission Hospital will help over ½ million Maasai and other Africans have access to life saving medicine, surgery, chiropractic, physical therapy, dentistry, and other services. Doctors from the U.S, Europe, and other industrial locations will partner with local Kenyan health officials to give quality care and save lives.
Internationally and within the United States, Dreamweaver is making a significant impact in children’s lives with its Gear for Goals project. Gear for Goals also called G4G for short is a powerful sports and arts project that is revolutionizing charity around the world. Moreover, the Gear for Goals project is saving the planet from waste and lowering the carbon footprint.
Dreamweaver is focused and determined to create lasting and sustainable impact that changes lives and is not satisfied with the status quo. Dreamweaver is resolute that everyone deserves to feel valued and needed. Therefore, all programs and partnerships take aim to make sure the basic mission is accomplished.
