Started in 2016, Dream village has been empowering HIV positive young adults and youth to reach their potential. Our aim is to make them have a positive and sustainable impact to the society where by they can realize and nurture their visions and dreams in life as well as become positive ambassadors for other people living with HIV who demonstrate the power of surviving against all odds a generation that takes their problems and solutions in their hands.
This not only inspires the same communities to follow their dreams but as well as reduces, stigmatization and promotes self-confidence which both are essentials in life.

I had got an opportunity to visit Dream Village in 2020. I was very impressed with the brilliant work they were doing. They provide economic empowerment and other life skills training for HIV infected people. These trainings are not only positively impacting their lives but also creating awareness and a mindset shift in the community. I admire the great work of the founder and his team members.
I got an opportunity to be part of Dream Village in 2019. I appreciate the participative leadership of Manzi Norman. I experienced the entire team feeling included, engaged and motivated to contribute. All the best to team Dream Village.
