DreamWorker is a non profit, social development organisation dedicated to helping unemployed people in the lower end of the economic sector find work. People like gardeners, painters, domestic workers, drivers, cashiers, waitrons, retail staff and more.
They are delighted to be a tenant partner at the Cape Town Science Centre. With easy commuter access for all their beneficiaries, they can service all the communities of the Cape Metropole. They also have offices in Atlantis and Port Shepstone, as well as fieldworkers operational in Hout Bay, Khayelitsha and Elsies River. In time (and with suitable funding), it is their dream to take this programme into all the major metropolitan areas across South Africa.
DreamWorker is all about inspiring, uplifting and giving hope to the unemployed, thereby maximising their chances of securing work. Their one-on-one interview process is backed up by a sophisticated database system, with tight administrative procedures. It is this combination of personalised attention and a sound business model, that serves as the strong base from which they assist the unemployed and place them into the correct work opportunities.
Apart from mentoring, registering and helping thousands of unemployed people into part time and permanent work opportunities, they have also launched their subsidiary programme, Link of Love.
Vouchers are sold for R100. Each voucher enables an unemployed person to work for a day in their own community – caring for the sick or elderly, tending community gardens etc. Their “Parents Working for School Fees” programme in Hanover Park, Athlone, Hout Bay and Delft is a great example of Link of Love in action. Link of Love is all about a hand up for the unemployed – not a handout!
