Dreamcatcher’s operational and administrative hub is to be found in the “township’ community of Melkhoutfontein, Stilbaai, South Africa. Our Home Office is situated in beautiful and historical surrounds in the heart of the rural community where we live among the people and nature: free to focus on our key objectives.

In keeping with our ethos and code of conduct, we empower locals to join our staff and assist and offer training in all levels of administration and technical abilities to not only do the job: but to do it well.

Bound by a common goal “to make our work, work”, we are a committed, hard working and highly productive team. It goes without saying that for the Dreamcatcher staff it is not just a job and about the salary. Staff are thus carefully recruited and mentored in each community. As we are pioneers in many aspects, each day offers a diverse range of activities in our dynamic office. Across the land in our Kamamma communities, we have fun, learn from each other, often draw on our inner strength and commitment to turn our work into a life’s task to work and stay true to our Dreamcatcher ethos in an environment which reflects life as lived.

We are thus not an arms length organisation. Dreamcatcher has a local site mentor in each community across the country where we offer projects.  The local site mentors, empowered and supported with skills and knowledge many on a daily basis, are part of our team.

We offer training and information exchange on a regular basis at our Home Office and we travel around the country to visit each community in a protracted community -and social engagement programme.  Working since before ‘Apartheid’ was dismantled, as part of our operational, knowledge transfer -and intern activities, we recruit volunteers from around the world to come and live and work with us in the communities on projects to make a difference and gain valuable experience to equip them in their future careers.

As a team at Dreamcatcher, we roll up our sleeves, stepped off our high heeled shoes and deliver on our objectives. We are building down to earth and getting the job done. Its what we as staff do – its who we are: Dreamcatchers :-).
