Dreamweaver International’s Gear for Goals Program
Gear for Goals is a unique program designed to align the need for sport and equipment with the children who require the most attention and resource. Our efforts are directed through community locally to gather new and gently used sports equipment from youth, families, sports organizations, schools, teams, and professional organizations. Our needs for equipment are across the complete spectrum of sport and include equipment, monetary donations, and coaching skill.
Our vision is to see every child in the world have the opportunity to play, compete, and enjoy sport through equal access to all the necessary equipment and instruction. Hope and possibility, flourishing community, transformed economies, inspired health, and lasting impact are the global imprint of our service.
The transportation and delivery of sports equipment can require financial assistance to fund shipping or freight transport via airline. On some of our mission trips, we carry the freight on the air carrier along with our teams. On other occasions, the equipment is sent via the necessary air, water, rail, or truck freight mechanisms with on-ground representatives accessing the equipment and distributing to the teams, schools, and organizations in greatest need.
Helping the Needy Become NEEDED
Our baseball program in Kenya is giving hope to hundreds of children and helping them focus on community service, education, and becoming self-motivated agents of social change that help bring millions out of poverty and change the world.
One young man in particular, Kelly, has risen to be an elite leader in his community despite difficult circumstances. Recently, his mother passed away and he has now taken on more responsibility for his younger brother. Besides playing baseball with the Kilimanjaro All-Stars, he is also attending secondary school (high school) and is sponsored by a generous Dreamweaver donor. We have hundreds of other children who need a chance to make a better life for themselves and grow to the leaders they can be.
Our programs have responded to the needs of the children since 2012 with the following successful efforts. Check out what where we have been and how it has impacted the children of those countries.
