the dream project



The Dream Project is a center for vulnerable children.  We support families in our community and have a family-style home for children who have been orphaned or made vulnerable either by poverty, or by the AIDS epidemic in Mozambique, Africa.



Deliver family environments to orphaned, abandoned, and impoverished children.

Restore children holistically, through education, Christian discipleship, and medical care.

Equip children with vocational training and life skills for a chance to become productive members of their society in adulthood.

Activate local adults to participate in helping the children in their communities out of spiritual and physical poverty.  

Mobilize individuals and teams to join The Dream Project on location for short and long-term mission efforts.

What We Do




Twelve young men live at 'Our Father's House' and are provided with all of their basic necessities, including a place to live. These boys range in age from ten years to 18 years, and when they age out of the home, we continue to support them as they transition into higher education, vocational school, and their roles as adult leaders in the community.

Community Support

Aside from our twelve house children, there are several families including dozens of children in the community who come to 'Our Father's House' to receive assistance with identity documents and education. Additionally, depending on individual needs, they receive assistance with health, housing, food, and additional basic needs. Many of the families we assist are led by widows.

Medical Assistance

Julia, who runs The Dream Project, is a Physician Assistant who provides medical care to the children and members of the community, many of whom have been affected by the AIDS epidemic. She also hosts elective medical rotations for Physician Assistant students and has orchestrated groups of Physician Assistants to come and host medical missions trips to serve those in need.


Christian Discipleship

Along with participating with the community in church services on Sunday mornings, the children also have daily devotionals orchestrated by Nigel and Lois and 'Our Father's House' staff members. In addition, many of the children who graduate from the orphanage go on to participate in further Bible training as adults.


All of the house children have their school fees, books, and uniforms (when necessary) paid for by The Dream Project. These children might otherwise not have the opportunity to receive formal education. We are also able to support many children (and some adults!) in the community when they are not able afford these basic needs to ensure adequate education.

Mission Efforts

Many long and short-term missions teams and individuals spend time working with the children and improving the lives of those in Mozambique through The Dream Project. Projects range from building projects to medical missons and everything in between. If you or your church group are interested in coming to visit us in Mozambique, please contact us at
