Dreamclub is an after school program focused on giving children a platform to create, innovate and express.

We believe each moment is a learning moment and by creating platforms that nurture each child’s curiosity and their interests, they are truly able to explore and engage with more realistic aspects of their world.

“School fosters, supports and celebrates academic growth and excellence; Nigerian children should be encouraged to learn, embrace & celebrate ALL forms of intelligence….Social intelligence is a LIFE SKILL”

Inviting The World To Play

The Global Cardboard Challenge began in 2012, following the overwhelming success of the short film, 'Caine's Arcade'. In 2017, we hope to surpass 1 million child participants!


Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This September, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Saturday, October 7th, 2017, a day that commemorates the flash mob that made Caine's day in the short film, communities come together and play!


Here are a few resources to help you host an awesome Cardboard Challenge.
