Summary

Aviva Lilia Bernardo Kullberg had a huge heart and loved everybody with her bright smile and radiant energy. Our precious Aviva passed away unexpectedly after severe heart complications. Though she had bouts of bradycardia (slow heart rate), doctors were puzzled and weren't able to figure out what afflicted her. Piles of data and lots of tests couldn't reveal anything abnormal. In Aviva's memory, this scholarship fund will help further the advancement of science of heart disease and its causes.

Challenge

Aviva Lilia Bernardo Kullberg had a huge heart and loved everybody with her bright smile and radiant energy. Our precious Aviva passed away unexpectedly after severe heart complications. Though she had bouts of bradycardia (slow heart rate), doctors were puzzled and weren't able to figure out what afflicted her. Piles of data and lots of tests couldn't reveal anything abnormal.

Solution

Open Dreams prepares aspiring college students from disadvantaged backgrounds through our unique Global Mentorship Model, connecting each scholar with mentors around the world who help them revise essays, explore colleges and majors, write recommendations and give general guidance with regard to the college application process. Our Summer Academy program includes computer programming, public speaking, leadership, entrepreneurship and community service requirements on top of SAT preparation.

Long-Term Impact

"Teach a man to fish rather than give a man a fish". Our scholars are community leaders, visionaries, technologists, entrepreneurs, etc seeking to bring development and innovation to their own communities. Despite difficult circumstances that include constant power outages, over 50 of our scholars have climbed long odds to fulfill their dream of attaining a college scholarship. Educated youth go on to help others in their communities, demonstrating the 'ripple effect' of community development.
