“Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom.”
Bahá’ís see the young as the most precious treasure a community can possess. In them are the promise and guarantee of the future. Yet, in order for this promise to be realized, children need to receive spiritual nourishment. In a world where the joy and innocence of childhood can be so easily overwhelmed by the aggressive pursuit of materialistic ends, the moral and spiritual education of children assumes vital importance.
Bahá’í classes and activities for children are raising a new generation of spiritually vibrant young people with the potential to grow up free from prejudice. Children learn that they are important to God and that they have a critical role to play in serving humanity and bettering the world.
Through music, stories, art, games, drama, and community service children learn about spiritual qualities, such as truthfulness, humility, and justice that will shape their lives and guide their choices.
