Become a Sacred Dreamer And Help Promote Educational Equality

With very little education and only my mother’s encouragement to aim high and break the cycle of poverty, I wrote down my five dreams on a scrap of paper: to go to America; to achieve a bachelor’s, a master’s, and a doctorate degree; and to give back to my community.

I then sealed this list of dreams in a tin can and buried them under a rock in the place I used to herd cattle.

Today I'm achieving my #SixthDream...

to create employment for rural women to sustain the local education system in my village in Zimbabwe. This education system was started through a generous donation by Oprah Winfrey, and is helping to “break the circle of poverty” especially for young girls. 

Because the truth is, if we don’t make it our mission to speak in the face of so much silencing, we may not be putting our hope in the next generation, but instead passing down our silences to the next generation.

Sacred Dreamers

What Drives My Sixth Dream

Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Zimbabwe’s population live in the rural areas, and 52% of them are poor women including mothers and grandmothers who are trying their best to educate their children and failing due to lack of employment.

Creating meaningful employment for women (mothers and grandmothers) is the surest way to:

  • Build a sustainable education system that guarantees a better future for children living in rural and poverty-stricken areas with greater benefits for the girls in particular

  • Deliver quality education that ensures both girls and boys have an opportunity to education past high school

Become a Sacred Dreamer

I’m planting my sixth dream in the hearts of one million women around the world and inspire them to buy 10 copies of my acclaimed book, The Awakened Woman. One copy for yourself, and nine additional copies for women in your life that you know are being silenced in one way or another.

Each book sold will bring me closer to helping the struggling rural woman of Zimbabwe, who want to stop the cycle of poverty and illiteracy, and hand over a new baton to their girls through education.

A Little About Me

I was born to a cattle-herding family in rural Zimbabwe (a country that was then known as Rhodesia) under a colonial system of governance and long-held cultural practices that charted the course of my early life, just as they had for generations before me.

By the age of eighteen, I was already a mother to four children, without so much as a high school diploma. One of my babies died as an infant because I failed to produce enough milk for the child; I was a child myself. But I was undeterred. With very little education and only my mother’s encouragement to aim high and break the cycle of poverty, I wrote down my five dreams on a scrap of paper: to go to America; to achieve a bachelor’s, a master’s, and a doctorate degree; and to give back to my community. I sealed this list of dreams in a tin can and buried it under a rock in the place I used to herd cattle.

It took me almost 20 years from the day I buried my dreams to earn my PhD. The surprise of my lifetime came in May 2011, when I was selected by Oprah Winfrey as her “all-time favorite guest” and gifted $1.5 million to rebuild a school in my home village. This gift set in motion the fulfillment of my fifth dream of giving back to my community by providing quality education for thousands of underprivileged children.

"The events of my early life silenced me, and I know many of you have suffered silences, too. I also know, like me, you can and will awaken and live your sacred dreams—a cosmic purpose lying dormant within that waits for you to arise and speak its name. This book is your guide to do this, to uncover and reignite that which is most sacred to you—the dream in your heart and the connection to your global sisters." -The Awakened Woman

Tererai's life's journey embodies the essence of every lesson I'd shared in my own work for 25 years: Hope; believing in something greater for yourself. Understanding your thoughts create your reality. Gratitude; appreciating what you have no matter what it is. Knowing it doesn’t matter where you come from. Keep reaching for your dreams. And above all... You have the power to change the course of your life with education.

-Oprah Winfrey

“In The Awakened Woman, Tererai Trent weaves her riveting story with that of other women to inspire us to dream as boldly as she dared to, then holds our hands and walks us through each crucial practical step to achieve those dreams. Tererai calls us to remember the foundation of who we are and reminds us of the rituals that ground us. This powerful interactive book is a perfect gift for your girlfriend, your daughter (or yourself!) when you want to say: BE YOU. BE BOLD. BE CREATIVE. YOUR LIFE MATTERS. And what could be more important than that?”

-Lisa Bloom

Civil rights lawyer and New York Times bestselling author of Think, Swagger and Suspicion Nation

I'm ready!

I want to become a sacred dreamer and help stop the silencing of women, help ensure educational equality, and help Tererai achieve her #SixthDream!
