Its really sweet that these children have such high hopes. I am going to donate in the hopes that they will see their dreams realised. With education and opportunity, there should be no reason they can't achieve anything they set out to do.
Good for you little ones. Don't let go of those dreams.

Thank you for sharing, it's very endearing to see how children have so much hope on life and that is what must be kept and protected. If these children keep these dreams and decide to make them true then they can definitely achieve something and have brighter future.

Without hopes and dreams, the human race is very poor indeed. These children remind us of our responsibility to ourselves and each other to reach beyond the harsh realities of the present toward a better tomorrow. Thank you, Brian, for giving this to us.
