theAboutThe Dream CatchersDespondents & Kids from Poor Homes
Dream Catchers Dance Academy (The Happy Kids) is a dance team made up of street and underprivileged children. The majority of children on this team have suffered loss, lived on the street and begged to feed – yet they exude so much joy and positivity when they dance. The Children in the Dream Catchers Academy are susceptible to risk and have chosen dance and the arts as a means of survival to change their lives. Currently, the Dream Catchers kids all live together as one big family.
To sustain and survive, we depend on donations from you our family and friends. We also depend on money made from The Dream Catchers dancing. Every single dollar made from their dancing and every dollar donated goes into providing the children with shelter, food, clean drinking water, clothing and education and proper healthcare.
We are making a change through innovative education.
Dream Catchers Dance Academy hopes to help and encourage underprivileged/Street children to stay in school while pursuing their dreams and passion. All members of the team are enrolled in school.
Our technique is to first introduce these kids to dance and then use their passion for the arts to enroll and keep them in school. The number one criteria for staying on the team is however, staying in school.
Every child deserves the right to succeed irrespective of their background.Seyi Oluyole
