Family and friends came together to celebrate Dillon’s 31st birthday. Click to watch the video here.
It is our combined wish that we can transcend space and time by using this connections place on Dillon’s web site. We constantly update this section with new photos, writings, video and other Dillon memories we all shared with him. It is the family’s desire to have everyone understand through this experience that it is the quality and depth that gives our life meaning.
Board members attended Surfrider’s annual fundraiser and enjoyed a live performance by Jack Johnson (pictured here).
Members of the Dillon Henry Foundation went to Congo to visit the Congo Peace School. They toured the school, met many of the current students, and had the pleasure of connecting with Amani in person since his visit to the United States.

We are so thrilled to announce that over the next few weeks, we will be building two pre-school classrooms at the Congo Peace School! This will be the very first pre-school of this type in the Congo’s rural area. We are so excited that this will continue to change the lives of so many children. Special thanks to our partners at PILA for helping us set this up!
We are so grateful for the commitment to make the world a more equal, just, and peaceful place for every person. Earlier this month, we had a fantastic afternoon for our Open House with Amani Matabaro. The day was filled with conversations and stories about the change Amani already sees in the students, families, and the community because of the principles of the Congo Peace School being put into daily practice: peace, equality, excellence.
