THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FROM ALL THE CHILDREN!

Sharing from «Baha’i Faith»

Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer to the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.

Generous contribution of Children from MONTESSORI SCHOOL By SHENANNZ, on 22/12/2016 06:20

Dear friends and supporters,

My heart is beating faster and faster each day when children come to me in my school giving me little envelopes from their savings to support the footpath school in Pakistan.

Some wants to send their own clothes, bags, shoes, stationeries etc etc. This is the message I wanted bring to their hearts. SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE THE MOST !! NOT WHAT YOU DON’T LIKE!!

The development of a global society calls for the cultivation of capacities far beyond anything the human race has so far been able to muster. The challenges ahead will require an enormous expansion in access to knowledge on the part of individuals and organizations alike. Universal education will be an indispensable contributor to this process of capacity building, but the effort will succeed only to the extent that both individuals and groups in every sector of society are able to acquire knowledge and to apply it to the shaping of human affairs.

Education must be lifelong. It should help people to develop the knowledge, values, attitudes and skills necessary to earn a livelihood and to contribute confidently and constructively to shaping communities that reflect principles of justice, equity and unity. It should also help the individual develop a sense of place and community, grounded in the local, but embracing the whole world. Successful education will cultivate virtue as the foundation for personal and collective well-being, and will nurture in individuals a deep sense of service and an active commitment to the welfare of their families, their communities, their countries, indeed, all mankind. It will encourage self-reflection and thinking in terms of historical process, and it will promote inspirational learning through such means as music, the arts, poetry, meditation and interaction with the natural environment.

Thank you dear friends, family and my dear students who have helped me achieved my target of CHF 2’380 to support 100 children’s uniforms from footpath school.

Your pledges will support 100 children who would go to school wearing a proper dress(uniform).

WE COULD NOT HAVE IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP!!

We still have 13 more days and we can support more than 100 students if you continue to spread the word until 24th of December!

Seeds of Knowledge Montessori school in VICH, Switzerland will help to support 20 more students by baking cookies and selling them to generate some more funds on 22nd of December.:)

The primary, the most urgent requirement is the promotion of education. It is inconceivable that any nation should achieve prosperity and success unless this paramount, this fundamental concern is carried forward. –Abdul Bàha

Thanks so much for your support over this month, it’s been so amazing to see the pledges rolling in.
