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

DELIVER + RESTORE + Encourage + Advocate + MOBILIze



Twelve young men were raised at 'Our Father's House' and provided with all of their basic necessities, including a place to live. These boys have now grown up and we continue to support them as they transition into higher education, vocational school, and their roles as adult leaders in the community. Our center is currently functioning as a transitional home as we transition the boys to independence and build them each a small home to begin their independent lives.

Community Support

Aside from the 12 children we have raised in our house, there are several families including dozens of children in the community who 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. We support children be raised in family environments in the community or in small orphanage settings of 12 children per home.

Medical Assistance

We provide help with medical needs in our community, we also provide health instruction to prevent some of the most devastating illnesses.


Christian Discipleship

Teaching the children in our care the ways of the Lord Jesus are of paramount importance for us. Many of our young men participate in an intensive 6-month discipleship training program with Youth With A Mission. Some of the children who graduate from the orphanage go on to participate in further Bible training as adults.


One of our values is to provide education for those who cannot afford it. We provide school fees, books, and uniforms (when necessary) and identity documents paid for by The Dream Project. Many children might otherwise not have the opportunity to receive formal 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
