For over 4 years Dreams Of My Homeland(DOMH) have ensured children in Kinsevere get the right infrastructure, teaching and support so they can benefit from their time at school and go on to achieve their potential. DOMH started as a project initiated by the founder Kaite Mbayo in 2012, with the goal to build a school in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo. The organization now serves the needs of Lexington’s immigrants, refugees and community members at large. As a community driven organization, we empower children, youth, families and elders from around the world by providing culturally and linguistically centered social services.
DOMH is working a cross the globe to improve access to education, to support skill development, and to help individuals achieve their potential.
