All this month, we've been encouraging our friends and supporters to participate in our #Dreamshare project by sharing your dreams -- for the world, your community, your family, your sponsored child, or particularly for Syrian refugees.
Today, we're sharing with you the dreams of children from around the world. In the photos below, the children are holding up signs that display their dreams, sharing them with the world.
