Dreams To Reality(DTR) is a small organization who serves the underserved community of Capricorn/Vrygrond. We work the children from this community and bring them sports training, computer training, reading & literacy program within local schools, holiday programs and a surf development program. We have been working with these children for 9 years running and with great success behind all of this. We have grown over the years and needed the help from international volunteers to come volunteer with these kids. Our only source of income/funding is from volunteer's program fees. With the fees we receive, we house volunteers and fund our volunteer programs within communities.
Since the arrival of Covid-19 pandemic which has impacted the whole world, borders are closed, flights grounded and local restrictions are in place, we find ourselves with little to no volunteers at the moment and have a 100 percent cancellation for the next couple of months, we are usure of how long the restrictions will be in place for.
Our local staff who work year in and out to develop and maintain these programs will be under immense pressure as their sole income is from DTR programs. The programs that we have implemented is for the community's children allows them to steer away from gangsterism, drugs, GBV and hunger. On all our programs we provide a meal, whether its a sandwich or a warm meal, on a daily basis. The volunteering program brings Hope, Love & Faith, in these uncertain times, to these children. With no funding coming in, DTR is on the verge of closing it's doors. We have been strecthed to the max with all these uncertainties in the world and can only hope for the best.
We appealing to all past, current, future volunteers, friends & family to help our wonderful staff with donations for salaries, so they may continue to do the work that they have strived to do with their whole hearts. We know this is a trying time for everyone in the world, but every donation would be really appreciated. The funds would be used for the salaries, programs and house rental so we dont get evicted from where our staff do their work from. We have pleaded with landlords for reprieve, however they not willing to work with us.
We will offer full transparancy where the funds go to. You are welcome to email us and we will provide you with the information .
