House of Light Dream for Kids Project - Since 2018, our CEO Sierra Dockery has been traveling to and from Ghana providing professional development for teachers and the necessary school supplies for children who are blind or visually impaired at the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind.

In 2018, our CEO had the incredible opportunity to visit Ghana alongside her mentor, Denise Allums. As a licensed Teacher of the Visually Impaired, Sierra's journey as an entrepreneur began as a resource teacher in the Chicago Public Schools. This rich background laid the foundation for her passion and commitment to creating positive change. More importantly, the place in which she created our slogan, “Making a Difference Beyond the Classroom.”

This year, Sierra's mentor, Denise Allums, embarked on a life-transforming Tour of Ghana, in collaboration with Linal Harris of Insights 4 Coaching Life. During a heartfelt conversation, Denise revealed that the tour would include a stop at the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind.

Driven by a deep passion to make a difference, Sierra felt compelled to take action. She turned to Facebook, leveraging her extensive network to seek support for a cause close to her heart: the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind. Within just 24 hours, contributions poured in from all corners of the world, leaving Sierra exhilarated by the overwhelming response from her supporters.

In an unexpected turn of events, Denise extended a heartfelt invitation, urging Sierra to embark on a transformative trip to Africa. The experience would forge an indelible connection with Ghana, its people, and a profound mission to empower the lives of students at the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind.

Together, we established an annual fundraising mission to address diverse needs, providing essential resources such as Braille books, Braille writers, canes, sports equipment, and invaluable professional development opportunities.


At House of Light, we believe in the power of collaboration and compassionate action to bring about transformative change.

Partner with us and be a part of creating a brighter future for students at the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind. Together, we can provide vital resources, professional development opportunities, and essential support that will uplift and empower these young minds.



August 2023 Update: Progress at Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind

We are thrilled to share that as of June 2023, the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind has secured funding from their government, marking a significant step forward in addressing foundational issues and building up the school.

While this funding is a substantial boost, the school still requires specific materials to ensure they can maintain quality education and enhance daily living skills for their students. Your continued support in providing these essential resources will make a lasting impact on the lives of these young learners.

Together, let's rally behind the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind and help them create a nurturing environment where each student can thrive.

We are still actively collecting funds and donations to support our cause. Here is a list of of items we are still in need of:

“Disability doesn't mean inability,” says the school's slogan, Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind in Ghana. So, by working together, we can improve the lives of young people who are blind or visually impaired. We agree with this and support this concept, which is why we've chosen to work with the Chicago-based Dream Academy Foundation this year to raise money for the Cape Coast School's children.

Your contribution has an impact. A child who is blind or visually challenged can have your support to see the world. You can help a child who is blind or visually impaired see the world.
