MY DREAM Song Project Started with Greenwich Kokusai Gakuen Children, Connecticut, USA!
This is our practice time and their first performance on their graduation day. They were so amazing.
The song MY DREAM was born because of this episode.
There is a village called Bognayili, in Northern Ghana, Africa.
My friend Yukari Hara, made the MY DREAM School in Bognayili in August 2012, after spending three months in Bognayili as an intern with a local NGO, to reciprocate what people in the village had done for her. While she was working as a diplomat of Japan in Accra, she traveled to the North over the weekend and to work closely with people in the village as a volunteer, helping them to realize better environments for children at MY DREAM School.

Yukari asked me if I could write a theme song for the MY DREAM Preschool. My answer was YES! And I wrote a song called “MY DREAM” with the message of “One day our dreams will come true”. I sent my first singing demo as a Christmas gift to the children in Bognayili in December 2013. The kids loved it and the village leader was so thankful and told me that “Our village needed a message like this”.
At the same time, I thought that it would be wonderful if I could connect the children around the world through this message “One day our dreams will come true”. I’ve started MY DREAM song project, and so far I’ve made versions associated with 3 different countries, NY - USA, Fukushima- Japan, and Ghana – Africa. Currently I’m working on France and Cambodia versions. I hope to continue to connect children around the world and support children’s dreams.
