Catch the Dream is a Community Interest Company working to achieve a world in which everyone is supporting themselves in sustainable communities.
We were established in May 2017 to support the recovery of Lungi Village in Sierra Leone. The village was devastated by the Ebola crisis of 2014-2016, facing multiple quarantines and the loss of their farming livelihoods.
We believe that by working in partnership with communities like Lungi Village we can help them to overcome dependency on aid and create thriving communities that are fully self-sufficient and can develop in line with their skills and ambitions.
We currently operate in the Boama Chiefdom in Bo District, Sierra Leone but hope to partner with communities across West Africa in the future.

We work collaboratively.
We don't have all the answers, we partner compassionately with and learn from the communities we support.
We celebrate diversity.
We embrace our differences, and actively seek to empower marginalised groups in the communities we serve.
