Brick-by-brick, nail-by-nail, over a million blue-collar workers build the dreams of UAE, while silently holding dreams of their own. But with monthly salaries as low as 200-300 USD, even the 200,000 nails they hammer in every month are not enough.

SmartLife Foundation wanted to help build their most important dream – that of a quality education for their children. They created SAPNA - A Wall of Dreams in Dubai during the holiday shopping season, where people could buy the very nails the workers hammer everyday, for 10 AED (~2.7 USD) each, and do a little labour on their part by hammering those nails into pointillist-designed markers on the wall.
