Board members at Wellington-based Dream Sponsors Inc. recently spent a Friday afternoon listening to and learning from a real life hero CNN Hero Award recipient Estella Pyfrom, founder and CEO of Estella’s Brilliant Bus (www.estellasbrilliantbus.org). Her assistant, Lisa McCray, later accepted a sponsorship check from Dream Sponsors.
The sponsorship marks the beginning of Dream Sponsors’ efforts to support local, needs-based organizations that cater to children, especially where education, basic necessities and self-sustainability are concerned.
While Dream Sponsors continues its work in Africa, the organization remains cognizant of the needs faced by many vulnerable children in the United States. Dream Sponsors is expanding its collaborative efforts locally, while continuing to think and act globally. The sponsorship will provide one South Florida youth with an opportunity to travel with the remarkable, two-week Tech Innovation Bus Tour 2016, arranged and hosted by Estella and her team of volunteers.
Also, Dream Sponsors will host collaborative partner Emmanuel LeinaTasur, the founder of Sirua Aulo Academy in Masa Mara, Kenya in early August. This will be the first visit to the U.S. for Tasur, who has worked to provide top quality education in the marginalized area of Maasailand, as well as providing enhanced education to sponsored youth of the Wellington-based organization.
