image00162-150x150I believe Distressed Children & Infants International (DCI) has developed excellent programs that can give American children the opportunity to learn about the lives of children from different countries around the world and will foster in them a sense of empathy for others and a desire to take a leadership role in working for humanitarian causes. My son Sebastian, a 7th grader at Dodd Middle School, has been sponsoring a child in Bangladesh and has been volunteering for DCI for the past 4 years. It is empowering for him to know he can make a difference in another person’s life. Like DCI, my family and I also envision a world in which all children have equal access to basic human necessities, including education, health care, food, and shelter, as well as the opportunity to achieve a secure and prosperous life. We all hope for a world in which child labor will be eliminated globally. DCI’s programs and efforts give us hope that this vision may become a reality one day. DCI is truly leading the world to peace. If you are a parent, you should consider getting your child involved with DCI’s programs. DCI has developed a system that instills compassion and responsibility in children who volunteer, which will benefit both your child and his or her sponsored child. I have really come to appreciate DCI’s great work.
