OUR MISSION is to encourage and promote renewable energy and environmental solutions and through income derived from art, music and cultural projects create socially responsible solutions that deliver environmental and economic prosperity and PEACE worldwide.
MAMA/PAPA/DMF is a 501c3 nonprofit organization established in April 1991 in Maui, Hawaii by Jason W. Schwartz.
We seek to inspire individuals and organizations to join together and TAKE ACTION TO CREATE A BETTER WORLD AT PEACE that is economically stable, environmentally sustainable, and full of creativity.
Through promotion of the arts, we, in turn, plan to raise awareness and revenue for environmental solutions and subsequent job creation. These goals will be accomplished through DreamMakers' two component parts - Maui Arts & Music Association (MAMA) and People Aligned in Positive Action (PAPA). Along with promoting music & arts and supporting the advancement of environmental sustainability and economic solutions, one of our main goals is to implement a job creation program that will provide much-needed JOBS ! It is the world that we wish to see duplicate these positive directions and LIFE styles.

"HOLD THE VISION"
Editorial opinion article as published in 1993; written by Jason W. Schwartz, then Executive Director of MAMA & PAPA, delivering the vision
Sharing the vision of the world in which we choose to live- this is the most important single answer we want to convey to the people of the world. If we choose to change the paradigm under which the political system exists, we MUST keep our sights on how we want the world to be.We must work to take ideas for what the future can be and act from this vision in all we do, no matter how challenging it may be to do so.
We hold a vision of a world where we have all the answers for all the people. We can have development and responsible environmental choices in the same programs. We can cooperate and make lots of money, so often the commodity we all need in this world, and bring the bickering to an end.
We can foster good will and economic assistance between the large economic powerhouses and environmental progressives, like me. We can marry the old and wise ideas and traditions of a past Hawaii with the high tech futuristic solutions of today...and tomorrow.
There can be answers to all of the problems we face. We simply must HOLD THAT VISION....and take ACTION!
Vision, desire and action all walk hand in hand. When there is vision, we create what we see! It is...NOW, not some future unreachable hope!
We offer to share a vision of a beautiful future, consciously creating and implementing an economic and environmental integrated action plan -
TO PROMOTE ART, MUSIC AND THE CULTURES OF THE WORLD TO FUEL RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS, thereby creating jobs & effectively diversifying the economy.
Our goal is to link up individuals and non-profit companies, all making money AND helping us at Dream Makers Foundation towards our goal:Our primary originally charted purpose is to promote the arts, music and cultures of the islands and through that promotion, create "sales" that inflow money to us to be used for the necessary research and development AND IMPLEMENTATION of important environmental programs and products and JOB CREATION, coupled with education
to establish a major renewable energy demonstration project using CUTTING EDGE technologies HERE in Maui, thereby creating jobs through the process for the peoples of Maui AND for the peoples of the world, by actualizing a continued "real" paradise
...a perfect marriage of vision for a brighter future.
WE CAN BE A LIVING BREATHING GLOBAL EXAMPLE WHERE GOOD WILL AND COOPERATION HAS BROUGHT GREATER YIELDS THAN THROUGH COMPETITION.
A vision without action is a daydream.
Ideas are only effective when they are implemented.
It is only through cooperation and mutual benefit that we, as a local, statewide, national, and international community, can hope to grow and prosper:...with a balanced overall plan - a plan to
a plan to RE-GENERATE NEW LEADERS capable to continue the actions of that plan - a plan that requires the ACTION and DEDICATION of its people, a plan of VISION - a plan of PEACE - a plan of FAITH - a plan of COMPASSION - a plan of GOD -
in other words,
a plan of LOVE.
