The Dreams Alive Foundation believes every child has the potential to do great things. We believe that through sports, children are given the tools to explore, learn, invent, and create. Spearheaded by retired professional footballer Christopher Omondi, the mission of our nonprofit is to help children develop their cognitive and social skills through football and education.
Using sports and academics as our instruments, the nonprofit aims to help children affected by HIV/AIDS. 1.6 million people in Kenya are living with HIV. Many of the children we sponsor are left orphaned by the disease. They are forced to drop out of school and walk great distances for food and water. Some never return home.
Our foundation’s purpose is to eliminate this. Through football, we strive to teach the value of teamwork, understanding, and trust. Through academics, we will raise bright, forward-thinking minds.
With encouragement, tolerance, teamwork, and friendship, we believe we can help these children become hardworking and benevolent adults.
To create a better future for young people by improving their employability and key life skills, through our sports and education-themed personal development programmes.
To create a level playing field where every young person has the opportunity to create a better future for themselves.
Although sport enriches our lives in countless ways, many of us get involved simply because it is fun to do so. Education is also the key to development and a self-sustainable society. In fostering that, we are guided by the belief that sport should be inclusive, ethical, innovative, and respectful.
That means we will always:
