RAINBOW CHILD INTERNATIONAL
WE BUILD BRIDGES AND OPEN DOORWAYS
Rainbow Child International (RCI) is a non-profit organization founded in 1984 by Sandy Taylor and dedicated to building global and environmental awareness and respect for cultural diversity. Our multicultural arts programs are designed to diffuse barriers, misunderstanding and fear between people of different backgrounds. Informative, enriching and fun, our hands-on programs develop an appreciation of differences, while students build skills and discover talents. Symbols and concepts learned, although unique to a particular culture, carry universal themes of friendship and respect for the earth.
