DCI Illinois Chapter Holds Journey for Rights & Sight Event

illinois_group-300DCI Illinois Chapter held a “Journey for Child Rights & Sight” event and dinner on Saturday September 15th, 2012 at the Bartlett Community Center in Bartlett, IL. The evening started with performances by children followed by performances by renowned local artists and short presentations by a number of community members who have visited DCI’s orphanage in Bangladesh. Pictures of the orphan children were displayed in the background throughout the evening. The first part of the program ended with a heart touching presentation by Dr. Ehsan Hoque, visionary Founder of DCI, who gave an overview of the program and invited the attendees to engage in this noble endeavor.

The second part of the program started after dinner with an outstanding performance by Anila, a young artist from Virginia whose melodious voice captured the heart of the audience. The highlight of the evening was our featured artist Alamgir, who stole the show with his outstanding performance. The event was attended by about 300 people.
