Dreams for Kids

                  "You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

              ~Mahatma Gandhi
 
One person can make a difference and create lasting change in the world. Our impact on a single person can result in a ripple effect felt far and wide.
This is a story about a generation of youth whose time has come. This is the true story of Dreams for Kids.
Dreams for Kids began at the request of my mother, and was influenced by mentors who have empowered millions of young people in communities around the world. These extraordinary humanitarians have changed, perhaps even saved, entire communities. They serve as an enduring example of how one person truly can make a difference in our world and produce an astounding living legacy.
You might wonder what you possibly could do to make a significant difference. This story will remind you that your contribution can make all the difference in the world.
We all have felt the pain of isolation. We all have lost someone. By recalling those moments when we feel most alone, we can relate to kids who feel that way every moment of their lives. And then we can do something. In reading stories of at-risk young people who have been given opportunity and used that gift to help others, we are filled with hope and the inspiration to place our own lives in perspective. Most importantly, we are motivated to engage and make our contribution, and truly be the change we wish to see in the world.
Within this story is also a new model of engagement, one that will end the isolation of a generation of young people living in poverty, or with disabilities, and engage them as leaders in a new world.
There is courage and determination in this story, and there is a common thread that connects every single one of us to it. It is the reminder that we all matter and that the greatest change can come from the most unlikely source.
If there is a lesson in this story, it is that we do have the vision to see past our perceptions, and that limitation is a state of mind. This story is a reminder to each of us that it is through giving that we experience our greatest prosperity. We can learn these lessons from a generation of youth born of destiny, committed to being united, and determined to transform the world.

Excerpt

We live in one of the most challenging times in human history. The mere thought of attempting to solve the critical sector issues which threaten our quality of life and even our very survival can seem daunting. That is one way to look at it. I prefer to see this time as the most exciting and promising in all of history. We are called to the greatest challenge and if we respond in ways we are capable, we will create a sustainable world of shared prosperity. We can end absolute poverty. We can stop the exploitation of children. We can advance human rights in such a way it will be unthinkable there was ever an issue.

Dreams for Kids is a vision of beauty, conviction, and discipline...a way of life...This book brings honor, and character and chivalry back to a culture in desperate need of purpose and meaning.

Dreams for Kids Reminds You - There is Hope
The message Author Tom Tuohy conveys first and foremost in his book, DREAMS FOR KIDS- Changing the World One Person at a Time is regardless of what life throws at one there is hope. The book introduces the reader to approximately six major individuals and a dolphin and proceed to show how compassion, genuine concern, support and assistance not only can make a difference, but will multiply, thus engaging others. Programs were established to meet the needs of both adults and children who were/are disadvantaged for one reason or another. By supporting, assisting, respecting and engaging youth, Dreams For Kids has mushroomed and expanded to other parts of the world.

One need look no further than this book to realize that our youth are ready, able and can meet the challenges of today and tomorrow if given the opportunity and tools. There are young people from all cracks and crevices of society which possess leadership abilities, potential, natural talents and skills that will amaze us if provided the opportunities.

The level of commitment, devotion and dedication of some mentioned in this book are extraordinary and indeed show that one person can make a difference, thus becoming a catalyst and galvanizing others into action.

Before completing the reading of this book, more than likely, you will be asking, how can I get involved? Upon completion of Dreams For Kids and learning of the variety of activities in which one can involve him/herself, all you will then need is your individual stroke for helping folk.

Dorothy Barron, Author of "Slinging Stones..." Co-founder& former Director of Parents Focused on Education
