Over the last 5 years, Living Media’s Dreamer program has helped 20 young adults from our community in rural Haiti pursue higher education and jump start their professional careers. This year we are asking your help to provide this opportunity to even more talented and determined future leaders. The Dreamer program helps these young adults achieve their educational dreams through one-time scholarships and pairing with a Haitian mentor in their field.
Watch the video above to hear from some of the Dreamers who’ve benefited from our program, and how their successes mean growing success for their community.

Help us reach our goal
|Progress towards our $10,000 goal|
We hope to award nine $1000 scholarships this January. Your donation can help us reach our goal of $10,000, which covers both the scholarships and the administrative costs/salary of our program coordinator.
Your donation, whether small or large, not only supports passionate young people with a commitment to their education, but also extends outward into the community. Accepted Dreamers perform at least two community service projects per year, and volunteer to provide training for high school students to plan for university or their future career.
