The Moral and Spiritual Education of Children
Love, Truthfulness and Justice
The purpose of the Moral and Spiritual Education of Children Program is to provide spiritual education for children by helping children learn about the qualities they inherently possess (like love, truthfulness and justice) and giving them an opportunity to develop their understanding of these qualities and build strong character.
Spiritual education gives children a strong foundation for the choices they will make in their lives as they grow older. Though the lessons are based on Baha’i Teachings, the themes are universal and apply to children of all religions and backgrounds. Baha’is partner with their neighbors, friends, and youth in particular, to ensure the spiritual education of all children.
Ultimately, the aim is for children to increasingly grow up free from all forms of prejudice, recognizing the oneness of humanity and appreciating the innate dignity and nobility of every human being.
