WELCOME TO DREAM ONE WORLD!
WELCOME to a different kind of nonprofit...
or as we prefer to call it, a "FOR-LOVE-IT."
As an ALL VOLUNTEER organization,
we work from LOVE, for LOVE... and we LOVE it.
DREAM ONE WORLD exists to give shelter, education, and peace to people, places, and animals in need of a helping hand or paw. :) The Life Challenge Recipients (LCRs) we assist all agree to
“PAY IT FORWARD.”
By doing so, our work moves through different venues throughout the world, to ultimately encompass all.
A big vision, but the power of ONE knows no limits!
Please read our mission below.
Then spend some time with the rest of our site,
viewing photos and reading stories about our current
and past projects, listening to our live media interviews,
and feeling our passion and heartfelt consciousness.
NOTE: Although we would love to help every
person, place, and animal on the planet,
at this time we are not able to take on any new work.
Thank you for your understanding,
and please visit our current amazing projects!
"The best things Americans are doing around the world these days is not in dropping bombs from unmanned drones, but in helping school children in places like Uganda, Kenya, and the southern Sudan. Dream One World's current Uganda School Project is one of those. It deserves wide support."
- Hon. Paul N. "Pete" McCloskey, Jr., 2011
Co-Founder of Earth Day, former U.S. Congressman and Presidential Candidate, Global Advisor for Dream One
This library, named "WISDOM,"
is initially serving as a classroom for 150 orphans
until the orphanage and K-6 buildings are constructed.
In Uganda, when a child becomes an orphan or when
a parent lands on Death Row, they are forced to leave
school as they can no longer pay the school fees.
Our school has no such fees,
and is staffed entirely by volunteers.
The school is truly a labor of LOVE!
WE NEED YOUR HELP
to purchase electricity
for our water well and school,
plus desks, chairs, blackboards,
teaching materials, etc.!
With Love and Gratitude, ALL of US

MISSION: Our work started in 2004 as a trust fund for hurricane disaster relief on Grand Bahama Island in the Bahamas. After a year there, we expanded to help wherever we could throughout the world.
Using our “PAY IT FORWARD” concept, those we help bring us others to assist. Since becoming a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in January of 2005, DREAM ONE WORLD has therefore gone all over the map - literally!

Through this process, a constant appeared, and in our quest to SIMPLIFY so we may SIMPLY FLY, we are now making this constant our ONE focus.
In a word, HOME.
Making monthly rent/mortgage payments, or rebuilding a HOME destroyed, or finding a HOME for an animal – we have found the basic need for shelter to be an underlying stress for each situation. The constant struggle for many to maintain a HOME makes it difficult for income to be used for other needs, such as health care, transportation, food, clothing, etc.
- The earth is HOME for all of us, and we honor it.
- Communities are “HOME bases,” and we honor them.
- Each being on earth needs a HOME, and we honor that need.
Donations to DREAM ONE WORLD lessen the burden of keeping and creating a HOME or community for all whom we assist... creating spaces of peace, support, serenity, and joy.
Depending on the situation, for humans our work may assist with rental payments, mortgage payments, with vehicle repairs to get to and from HOME, rebuilding, and/or other home needs. Our partnered work with animal rescue helps in finding HOMES for animals in dire need.
Our community rejuvenation "HOME base" projects encourage green building, removing litter, planting community gardens, creating areas for contemplation, eliminating homelessness for both humans and animals, building schools/orphanages, and creating a community consciousness to repair and beautify our own HOMES and business areas.
All our work honors our earth, HOME for every-ONE.
