Since 1988, The Reach For A Dream Foundation has brought hope, joy and healing to South African children and their families by offering the child a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to an life-threatening illness.

“By fulfilling their dreams, Reach For A Dream brings hope, joy and inspiration by offering a magical moment to regain a childhood lost to illness” – Julia Sotirianakos, CEO, Reach For A Dream

In 30 years, the Reach For A Dream Foundation has brought hope to over 60 000 life-threatened children across South Africa. The Foundation discovered an interesting fact about life-threatening illnesses: a larger percentage of children survive than adults. We believe that one of the reasons for this is, that children simply have not learnt what life-threatening means; they live each day as it is given to them. For children attitude is everything, and they need all the encouragement they can get. Whatever the dream, no matter how big or small, it often gives the child hope and courage to carry on the fight. The fulfilment of these dreams inspires hope and courage in the dreamer and helps them believe that tomorrow is worth fighting for.

“Hope gives us the courage to confront our circumstances and the capacity to surmount them.” – Dr Groopman, author of “The Anatomy of Hope” and Professor at Harvard Medical School.
