Dream Day Foundation

Our mission is to support the social, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being of child refugees through the performing arts, including drama, music and dance.

Today, there are more refugees and internally displaced people than at any point since World War II.  An unprecedented 70.8 million people around the world have been forced from home.  Among them are nearly 25.9 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18.

Young refugees face many challenges including homesickness, cultural shock, lack of employment, racism and discrimination. As a result, many of them become disengaged, creating long-term social gaps. For people with social isolation and similar issues, participation in the arts can help provide them with a means to express painful emotions, confront difficult memories and find an escape from daily burdens. The use of songs, pictures and other artistic devices can also help children learn their lessons more effectively by enabling them to use their imaginations and their senses more completely than is possible with less creative learning methods.

Dream Day is an internal nonprofit project of GVNG.org, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. EIN: 81-2446261.

 
 

This is where Dream Day Foundation comes in. The Foundation will bring in artists from around the world to coach and mentor young refugees culminating with a Live Aid style concert called the Dream Day Festival held on June 20, 2021 (World Refugee Day) in the ancient city of Jerash, Jordan.  The Foundation will also produce a concert for the more than 5,000 teens who live in Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan.

The funds raised from the Dream Day Festival will be used to establish the first formal music program at Zaatari refugee camp where 40,000 children currently reside. The plan is to use Zaatari as a pilot program and model that can be replicated in refugee camps and host communities around the world beginning with those countries that have been most affected by the refugee crisis such as Greece, Turkey and Lebanon.
