Dreamtown has been active in Sierra Leone since 2010. Our interventions target fragile urban areas across the cities of Freetown, Makeni, Magburaka, and Koidu.
motivated by challenges - guided by dreams
In the urban slum young people have little access to safe and conducive public space. We support the development of creative urban space which can spark an idea, ignite a dream, bring people together and equip young people with knowledge.
Grassroots create cracks in the concrete. They challenge dominant structures. We support young aspiring activist and local grassroots organisations to take the lead in shaping their community and make their voice heard all the way to the City Mayor's Office.
Cities are fragile and the wellbeing of young people is at risk when disasters strike. We work towards safe and resilient urban environments for youth. This includes making the physical environment adaptive towards climate change and people better equipped to protect their community if a disaster strikes.
