This weekend we were invited to the opening of the worlds first Children’s World library in Vienna which was founded by not for profit organisation Who I Am which was founded by an inspirational client of ours, Chadwick V.R Williams.
The opening was attended by over 400 people including 26 ambassadors from embassies who had kindly donated books in their country’s languages. Also present were City of Vienna Councilman Christian Oxonitsch, Stacey Wilson-McMahon – founder of #Apatchworks who created the wonderful mosaic sign , Chadwick V.R. Williams – Founder of Who I Am, Eser Ari-Akbaba -Austrian Television Moderator,Markus Feigl -Director of Vienna Public Libraries and Brigitte Bauer-Sebek -Director of the Department for Education and Extracurricular Programs for the City of Vienna.
Who I Am consists of a group of committed international student and adult volunteers who are multi lingual ,multi cultural and who are dedicated to improving the linguistic and cultural ethos for children. They are consistently trying to find solutions to societal issues for children in the context of education, multi-literacy development, and identity.
It was a wonderful event and Who I Am’ s quest to turn the page on global is one that we are passionate about . Eventually the aim is to open a network of Children’ s World libraries across the globe and
we cant wait to attend the next opening !
