Our Vision

"It takes a village to raise a child." - African Proverb.

We believe in connecting people through culture. Immigration, globalization, and technology have changed the way people connect to their culture and heritage. The Pearl Dream, Inc, through its DreamAfrica platform aspires to create an online village for connecting people to authentic and original African stories. 

The ultimate benefit of DreamAfrica is knowing one’s self and where one comes from; an enhanced sense of purpose, pride and identity. Whereas before one might only imagine or “dream” about one’s heritage, DreamAfrica helps make it real and meaningful. The breadth and scope of the content leaves something for everybody(teachers, parents and children 5-12 years).
