DreamCode reaches children and teens through a S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) based afterschool program and invests in mentoring high school students to be leaders and role models in the program. Our vision is to impact the community by helping young people get the right education, develop relevant job / life skills, break the cycle of poverty and grow in their faith.
DreamCode will be launching this fall in Ota, Ogun State as the first UrbanPromise site in Nigeria. Ota is a fast growing community with an estimated population of over 500,000 people in an area of 339 square miles. It is about a 20 minutes drive away from Lagos State one of the major cities in Nigeria. It is mostly agrarian in nature with middle class and low income families. Nigeria is considered the most populous country in Africa with over 190 Million people with about 50% below 30.
