Review for International Child Art Foundation, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I participated on the World Children's Festival last year together with students and teachers from two schools in Sweden. What impressed me most was the dedication Dr. Ashfaq Ishaq and his voluntary organization showed for arranging the event. We were hosted in two wonderful and caring families who works for the US Coast Guard. They opened their homes and gave us memories for life. The contact started with a humble mail request by Dr. Ishaq for running a creative activity on the festival for the children. If you really want peace on earth and want to make a difference is this an organization who knows how to do it. Our children is the future and we have to nurture their creativity and empathy. Let's meet on the World Children's Festival in 2015 and make sure to donate and support the organization by participating in their activities and spread their messages every day.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Participating in discussions about the festival and volunteers and what is needed for reaching out to more people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Start the planning and fund raising earlier and spread information about the needed work and really make sure there are more interaction afterwards in Social media... but this is a great start!

The organisation made it possible for our delegation from Sweden to participate on the World Children's Festival with a creative activity. We got contact with two amazing host families who took care of everything during our visit during the festival days. This was a memory for life and the friendship build new bridges between countries and people.

How they managed to arrange everything from the acitivities on the festival to host families for our delegation.

Be involed earlier and get to know more about the organisation and how I can help to promote the festival to donators and sponsors.
