Donate and make a difference

Welcome to Global Dream Catching where every little helps

We are grateful to the donors as global contributing citizens, for donations and grants to help Dreamcatcher to continue in our quest with the communities we work in across South Africa. Since our inception, our aim with the donations we generate, is to develop a platform for giving globally to join Team Dreamcatcher and make a collective difference. Every dollar, rand, euro and pound goes directly into our bank account, avoids handling fees by subsidiaries or third parties costs and mounts up to deliver impact locally by generous people globally.

Chenoa Gachupin volunteering at Dreamcatcher South AfricaWe believe in putting an end to aid without end and that each project we embark upon, must facilitate a legacy, be sustainable and facilitate increased quality of life and a chance for realise their potential, for the women, children and youth on our projects. Our donors thus have ease of mind that their money goes where it is intended. The Dreamcatcher team, overseen by committed management board members, with caring intent and carefully audited accounting system, ensure that every dollar,rand, pound and euro work for the purpose it was sought. We are your hands and feet on the ground and our donors give us wings to fly further together in a truly a global partnership.

How do we decide and what do we spend the donations on?

We research the needs with the Kamammas and stakeholders in their communities and guide projects, track impacts and measure results. We actively engage youth and children on issues which impact upon the environment, their health and lack of skills and we endeavour to address barriers which inhibit their development. No funds are spent in isolation, but rather with a purpose to bring lasting or long term results. It can thus be safely assumed that we have our ears and feet on the ground in each of the 16 township communities where Dreamcatcher is involved across South Africa. Subscribing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Dreamcatcher has a strong environmental, health and wellness ethos; we address recurring poverty, food poverty and sustained unemployment.

Volunteers making a difference for Dreamcatcher South AfricaDreamcatcher has identified, mentored and trained strong women in each Dreamcatcher community in South Africa to affect and bring about positive change with us in a team to contribute her skills, identifying projects/activity and needs. To facilitate growth, she leads by example. We do not develop the Kamamma (community mother who carries her child/community on her back), in isolation to forget their roots. Our way is to assist her to help herself and then to affect change where she lives.

Dreamcatcher Kamammas thus stay and live close to their roots. Focusing on women and youth particularly, we join hands to enable the growth of knowledge, education, skills in her community. and direct our efforts at promoting health and wellness and addressing recurring food poverty. Over the 2 decades we have been working and living in the township communities.
