What we do

As we pursue our shared vision of building a brighter future for all, social responsibility sits at the heart of every decision we make here at Dream Hotels & Resorts. Touching Dreams reflects this, encompassing new and ongoing projects to help those who need it most.

We are on a mission to drive real change and foster a strong sense of hope as we help turn dreams into reality. As we’ve learnt over the years, even one simple act of kindness can completely change someone’s life, further prompting them to do the same for others.

HOW WE DO IT

We support several community-based initiatives within our Touching Dreams portfolio. Many of these are angled to support the development of South Africa’s future leaders, some of which are detailed below. Along side these initiatives, each of the 24 properties in the Dream Hotels & Resorts family have also pledged to nominate a charity within their community that is associated with early childhood development or youth development.

Reach For A Dream seeks to alleviate the strain that life-threatening illnesses place on sick children and their families by providing these dreamers with the opportunity to believe in their greatest wish. The Foundation has been providing dreams to children all around the country for 33 years in counting. These young children are under extreme pressure to deal with these medical issues and are in desperate need of encouragement. In addition, Reach For A Dream offers the child a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to an illness.

The primary goal of Christel House is breaking the cycle of poverty, which is something we are always willing to get behind here at Dream Hotels & Resorts. Based in the Western Cape, this growing institution assists in educating vulnerable children from Grade R to Grade 12, further providing necessary career guidance and emotional support. We greatly appreciate how their team places strong emphasis on building confidence and a sense of self-sufficiency within each student. With significant operational demands at Christel House, the ongoing financial support we provide allows them to continue their good work.

Based at Langkloof settlement in the Northern Drakensberg, Langkloof Orphanage has long stood as a haven for AIDS orphans and vulnerable children. As the primary benefactor, Dream Hotels & Resorts works closely with the current supervisor, Lindiwe Khoza, to provide everything these young cubs need to thrive: food, shelter, safety, and love. Our team offers significant support by covering monthly operating costs, daily meals, and property maintenance, which includes the on-site creche and primary school.

Based in Durban, St Martins provides a safe respite for young boys and girls from all backgrounds. Dream Hotels & Resorts wants to play an active role in making this house feel like a real home, going beyond keeping the lights on and the water running. By helping to alleviate their high operating costs, St Martins staff can turn their focus on providing adequate developmental support for every child who passes through their doors.
