2022 Q4 Impact Report

Our 2022 Q4 Impact Report is now available!

As we close out 2022, I want to drop in to say thank you once again for your generous support of DreamRoot Leadership Institute and believing in this mission. You have been an advocate for those living in underserved communities who are too often overlooked and isolated from opportunities.

Your support this year has provided a platform for their voices to be heard and access to programs and resources that enable them to create sustainable change initiatives that reverse cycles of poverty and promote the well-being of every member of society.

In just the last quarter of this year, through your partnership, we have been able to:  

  • Facilitate a leadership workshop with 22 local leaders across Brazil.
  • Relaunch the tutoring program in Haiti for the 2022/2023 school year.
  • Continue coaching, advising, and networking for local leaders.
  • Host a U.S./Brazil cross-cultural exchange trip.
  • Donate over 76 Jiu Jitsu uniforms plus toys and clothes.
  • Further equip our leadership team through team care training.
  • Roll out Special Edition DreamRoot jiu jitsu uniforms.

Wew! We’ve been busy. And what a fun time it has been!

DreamRoot has some fun projects and events lined up for 2023. We're looking forward to the year to come.

Executive Director, DreamRoot Leadership Institute
