The first Pacific Island project was conducted by Ken in Suva, Fiji, in early August 2009. Thirteen children in significantly at-risk and disadvantaged circumstances created beautiful pictures, showing similar dreams and aspirations to the children in Tanzania. The ABCD drawings, photographs and the children’s compelling, personal stories are combined as framed works of art and other articles which are made available to a wide range of supporters including individuals, schools, families, communities, local business and the larger corporations.
The ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams project is spreading. Our aim is to replicate the projects as far and as wide as possible, so that more and more children around the world can afford the education that could provide the key to their future – and the future of their families and communities.
