Meet the campaigns
As we make sense of the ‘new normal’ post the COVID-19 world, Dream a Dream offers you an invitation to join a global movement in education: #WhatIf.
The #WhatIf Movement is a community driven initiative with the intention to invite a pause, a moment, a stillness into our being before we can respond to support our children. It is an initiative to explore and discover what could be our most compassionate offer to our children during this pandemic and post when children begin to re-engage with school.
