The Rotary Club of Newmarket has been a major supporter of ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams over the past two years. Last week, I formally thanked Rotarians in Newmarket on behalf of Frank, Laurie and Joseph with a power point presentation reviewing ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams origins and its activities during this recent trip to Tanzania. Rotarians had an opportunity to see images of some of our children in their homes, with their families and at school.
Rotary’s motto “Make Dreams Real” for the children of the world and ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams similar vision makes these two like-minded organizations effective partners in addressing the developmental needs of children in some of the poorest countries in the world. We are thrilled to be in discussions with Ken Wall and the Rotary Club of Templestowe in Melbourne, Australia about taking the ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams model to children in the Pacific Islands, Timor and Papua New Guinea.
