Dream Imua is a
dream-fulfillment program for children facing crisis in Maui County.
Each Dream is child-designed and directed, and is rooted in creatively connecting with nature and the community in ways that make our Dreamer feel special.
Dream Imua demonstrates how even the smallest act of kindness can positively impact a child and bestow the gift of hope.
Just as dreams take on all shapes and sizes, Dreams can be simple or elaborate. Some have prepared a dinner alongside a celebrity chef, learned to play an instrument, or spent a day exploring the Valley Isle. Other Dreams may be as simple as a backpack with school supplies, a bike, or Thanksgiving Dinner.
With a child-directed approach, Dream Imua goes beyond providing a reprieve from suffering. We help children validate their self-worth, and offer a positive and supportive space for creativity, community and collaboration.
Dream Imua is supported by our Dream Imua Coordinator.
We connect businesses, corporations, office teams, retailers, individuals and community partners to create the dreams for children.
