  1. What a wonderful gift from God, we thank him for the special talents he gave un to you and to everyone else and we hope that the world will be a better place for every individual with a talent. It is important for parents to understand that life is not only about education but also other talents. Thank you CFCA for giving our beneficiaries the opportunity to explore their talents. BRAVO!!!!!!

  2. I am so impressed with everything about CFCA. I hope one of my loving children in India will have his or her artwork selected next year for one of the Christmas card designs.

    The children are so loving and grateful for everything that is done for them. We are enriched by our letters from both Naveen and Nida Fatima.
