I live and work in Goa in India, running a multidisciplinary child development and family guidance centre called Sethu, for children with developmental, behavioral, educational and emotional difficulties. What I love best about your website and newsletter is that they are filled with practical, realistic and backed-by-experience advice. I can apply your suggestions in resource poor environments. The families I work with often do not have the finances or access to professional services. However with your guidance, they feel empowered to do the best they can. We need more resources like Edu Designs that offer professional help without commercial interests in mind. Thank you for all you do!
I know Ruth Elliott personally. (I am married to her.) Every time we go out shopping she engages with parents and their kids, giving them the one-minute introduction to EDU designs and Gomommygo, handing out her behavior cards, and eliciting smiles and thank yous. When we are at home, Ruth is at the computer writing her latest motivation piece about hanging in there and remembering that no matter who you are or where you are, you have help. I have never known a person more dedicated to bringing her message to the world.
Art - and the arts can have such powerful benefits to all children. Many children go through school with limited access to art lessons, classes, and enrichment. Edu Designs provides these opportunities and I am so grateful that they do so.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! :)
As a member of the board, I can personally say I've never met anyone as dedicated to a cause as Ruth Elliot. She has given so much of her own time and money to this project, one that she believes in wholeheartedly. EDU Designs is a personal project spawned from her desire to help the children of the world. While highly ambitious, she has never faltered, and I have nothing but respect for her and her organization.
Each person makes a difference. Your help is invaluable! Thank you for your 'Vote of confidence!' :)
Dear Ruth Elliott-Hilsdon, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to copies some of your books for the past one year. We want you to know that we have appreciated your humanitarian works. Your cooperation has helped us run smoothly and has led to establish new NGO Reward Foundation Ghana. We look forward to many more years of mutually beneficial association and wish your organization the success that it deserves. Thanks

My mother would always tell me how important it was to take advantage of your chance to learn when you are young- that when you are older you will be so busy working you may not get the chance you have now. This is one of the things that I love about EDU DESIGNS. They are investing in kids WHILE THERE'S STILL HOPE!
