Changing the atmosphere of Johannesburg!




Welcome to our website. You may be thinking what or who is the Johannesburg Dream Center?

The Johannesburg Dream Center is a non-profit in South Africa aimed at helping people living in poverty in all different kinds of ways. We help the mother who dreams of feeding her child. The father who dreams of getting a job to provide a better life for his children. And the child who dreams of becoming a lawyer one day. We help those in desperate need of empowerment in order to change their lives for the better. And we do it with the help of people just like you!

So take your time and have a look around and press that volunteer/donate/contact us button when you are ready to change lives with us and to make a difference that matters!

How we are helping fight poverty and the damage caused by Covid.

We meet immediate needs of families living in crises mode due to severe poverty. We do this by redistributing much needd food parcels and other donations when we have them on hand. 

Our heart and main focus is on empowering the community to find meaningful employment or to even create their own incomes. We do this by helping with CV’s, job searches, and interview prep as well as upskilling the community by teaching them to sew, start their own businesses as well as other skills our volunteers have to offer. 

We believe that we not only need to address the current adult population in tackling poverty. We need to equip and inspire the youth to upskill themselves and to follow meaningful career paths. We do this on both inspirational, empowerment and practical methods. They are our future!

Help us by making a difference that matters!
