As part of the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s ODA (Official Development Assistance) project, Dream Together Project offers an opportunity for developing countries to learn from Korea’s expertise and knowhow in sports it has acquired in the process of becoming one of the sporting powerhouses of the world. The project consists of four programs: (1) educating sports administrators (through the Dream Together Master), (2) educating sports coaches, (3) training invited athletes at the Jincheon National Training Center, and (4) Dispatching coaches, provision of sports equipment.

As a part of the Korea’s Dream Together Project, the DTM team recruited future students who are currently working as sport administrators, promoted the program to the delegates, and developed new business opportunities. Also, the DTM team had meetings with various international organizations to foster future cooperation and promote the program.
