Dream Makers is a betPawa corporate social responsibility (CSR) program that aims to fulfill the aspirations of its customer base. Dream Maker was established in 2021.
In October, the Dream Bus traveled traverse these two countries, inviting individuals from the Ruvuma, Mtwara, and Lindi regions in Tanzania and Nairobi, Kakamega, Eldoret, Nakuru, and Mombasa from Kenya to get inside and express their hopes. Many more came in online, and betPawa looked over every one of them before choosing 40 to assist in realizing their dreams.
Here are some of the Dream Makers and their excitement.
