DCI Holds Journey for Rights & Sight Event and Introductory Program for AZ Chapter

az-event-300On October 6, 2012, Distressed Children & Infants International held an event at Rhodes Junior High School in Mesa, Arizona.

The event served two functions: 1) to continue DCI’s Journey for Child Rights & Sight and raise awareness of child rights and blindness issues among a wider network, and 2) as an introductory program for DCI’s Arizona Chapter, encouraging their efforts on behalf of DCI’s mission. The event was well-attended and well-received, with much enthusiasm being generated for DCI and its charitable work in Bangladesh.

The highlight of the evening was a spectacular production of ‘Heerok Rajar Deshe’ by Bangladesh Theater of Arizona. The performance demonstrated that DCI has a sizeable and motivated group of youth supporters in Arizona who are using their creativity to serve the underprivileged.

DCI Executive Director Dr. Ehsan Hoque gave a presentation about DCI’s mission and programs on behalf of underprivileged children. Mr. Serim Zaid, Coordinator of Chapter & Team Development for DCI also attended the event, shared his experience with DCI and inspired the children and parents in the audience to get involved in DCI’s “Power of 3” program.

DCI would like to thank the Arizona Chapter and all the performers for putting together such a fantastic and engaging program, as well as all the attendees and supporters for making the evening a success. We also thank the Bangladesh Association of Phoenix, the Bangladesh Students’ Association at Arizona State University and Shikor Bangla School for their support.
