The African Dream Benefit is a Perth based charity organisation aimed at making a difference through education. In 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 26 dictated that everyone has the right to an education. The African Dream Benefit takes this idea further. Children not only deserve a basic education, but they have the right to a quality and relevant education that will enable them to achieve our dreams despite their financial circumstances. Today, high levels of poverty continue to deny many children access to quality education. This inadequate access creates economic, social and political barriers for young people and stunts future economic growth within the African continent.
We believe that through quality education, children are empowered.
Empowering children towards realising their hopes and dreams ensures that African nations are adequately skilled. It also allows for sound economic growth and an improved standard of living in Africa whilst challenging the negative effects of generational poverty.
The African Dream Benefit values human rights and equality. Children have the right to a high level of education that will allow them to participate equally as global citizens despite their socio-economic circumstances. We value education as a key strategy for sustained economic growth in Africa.
