Moses Visits North Seattle Dental
Dreams for Orphans would like to thank Dr. Worstman from North Seattle Dental for helping Moses keep his award winning smile! She and her staff graciously donated their services to clean, x-ray, place sealant and complete two fillings. Moses couldn't have been more excited!
Moses Arrives in the United States
Moses is an orphan from Ghana who is being sponsored by Dreams for Orphans. After months of planning and hard work by the Dreams for Orphans staff, Moses has finally been able to come to the United States! He will be living with Dreams for Orphans founder Kary Doerfler and attending Seattle Central Community College - dreams do come true!
Delta pilots greet Moses as he makes his journey to the United States.
Edward Attends Ashesi University
Edward, an orphan sponsored by Dreams for Orphans, has received a full scholarship to attend Ashesi University! Ashesi is a college founded by Patrick Awuah from Seattle. Dreams for Orphans will be donating to the Ashesi foundation to cover Edward's room, board and insurance. We're so excited about this new partnership; it creates opportunities for so many more orphans to attend college!
Time for a Field Trip!
A group of Dreams for Orphans advocates visiting Ghana rented a bus and took 21 children from orphanage to Cape Coast to tour the slave castle. The kids sang, watched movies, had lunch and had a great time in the bus and on the tour! This event was led by: Kary Doerfler, Lexi Doerfler, Taylor Doerfler, Lisa Burke, Pat Burke, Jonathon Burke and Zak Burke.
