    Kirsten, it is such extraordinary work that you do. Far reaching and forward thinking. You should feel very proud of all the opportunities for learning that you provide to children around the world. Often times, it is that initial glimpse of opportunity that allows children to begin to realize that their dreams CAN be achieved and their hopes CAN be realized. Vision Workshops can and does create opportunities and futures for children around the world, who would not have that chance without you. Quite amazing and powerful! Hopefully your work will continue on for years to come with the underserved children of the world.
