ORGANIZATION PROFILE

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 ,hiv kenya

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.
