Phodographer Patrick Firouzian in Lhasa, Tibet, October 2010
Patrick packed Foto on his second trip to add Dog Meets World to his Global Roots work. This time he took Foto along to Braille without Borders in Lhasa. Global Roots is helping a kindergarten project…In the school, the children discovered Foto the puppy, sensing all its shapes and textures. “Ki! Ki!” (means: dog) they screamed after just a few seconds! Patrick recommends every Lhasa visitor to go to the Braille without Borders school to say Hi to the children, bring some milk, teach them some new words, play with them. They really enjoy another window to the world.
Best Foto of the Week!

"Dog Meets World went over fabulously in my village. It is a perfect option for Peace Corps volunteers like myself. I like the Foto dog mascot, kids like it, and it is a representation of the peace and the ideas of the project."
