our activities

Hostel Life and Welfare

Many of our girls have suffered homelessness and abuse from living in unsafe communities and have been survivors of Gender-Based Violence (GBV). Our living space provides a safe and healthy place for our girls to grow and flourish. They have enough time to focus on their goals and education.

Farming Program

All our girls have a portion of land to plant on. We are empowering our girls with agricultural skills which are in line with SDGs Goal 1 and 2 – No Poverty and Zero Hunger. We want to inspire financial independence as they grow.

With farming skills, our girls understand raising food, working hard, communication and caring for others.

Support our farming project.

Art Classes

At Dream Catchers Academy, we are raising art ambassadors with leadership qualities. Despite the rich legacy of the arts in Nigeria, arts education is not accessible to young girls from low income communities and a very small percentage of children have access to extracurricular arts training and education.

A focus study done in the Ikorodu community has shown that girls who desire a career in the arts often drop out before high school because they believe formal education plays no important role in their career path. Many girls have fallen victim to predators and traffickers due to false ‘stories of success’. We have professionals teaching our students how to become great artists and leaders. It is important that girls feel empowered and supported in their chosen career field. Our girls currently take classes in Dancing, Music (Theory and Practical), Drama and Visual Arts.

Our Performances

Our girls are seasoned performers and entertainers and get the chance to perform at events. A percentage of Donations given from performances is put into a trust fund for our girls – to help build financial independence as they grow older.

Class Activity

According to Unicef, Worldwide, 129 million girls are out of school. We Invest in girls’ education so we can transform communities, countries and the entire world. When girls receive education, they are less likely to marry young and more likely to lead healthy, productive lives. Through educating girls, we are convinced we will strengthen economies and reduce inequality. We are in line with Goals 4 and 5.

Field Trips

Field trips help students interact with what they are learning. Through field trips, students can answer the question of how learning can be applied in life. With sponsorships and partnerships – we are able to take our students on important and educative

Giving Back

The importance of paying it forward can never be overemphasized. As our girls are blessed to receive so much – we teach them to give to others. As a reminder that they must be the change they want to see in the world.
