CHILDREN ARE THE MOST PRECIOUS TREASURE A COMMUNITY CAN POSSESS, FOR IN THEM ARE THE PROMISE AND GUARANTEE OF THE FUTURE
Local children's class participants are joined by the junior youth group for an activity.
Children are the most precious resource a community has. Bahá'ís believe that moral and values-based training for children are essential in order to nurture their capacities. Thus, Bahá'í communities worldwide sponsor education classes for children of all backgrounds. The classes seek to develop essential virtues such as generosity, honesty and kindness.
They aim to build a strong moral framework that will assist children to achieve excellence in material, intellectual, health and moral aspects of life. Much like a young tree, children will grow and develop in whatever way they are trained and according to the influences they experience. The classes encourage children to recognise their own nobility and the inherent nobility of their friends. The children acquire knowledge and moral capacities which they can integrate into their everyday lives. Lessons are catered for children at around the ages of 5 to 10 years and normally run for around 1.5 hours. The format of the lessons consists of quotations, stories, songs, arts & crafts and games & activities. To find out more please contact us.
