Transforming Hearts in the Classroom and Beyond

By Godwin Mongi | Master Facilitator

The transformative impact of The Virtues Project in fostering positive behavior and character development among our school children has been nothing short of remarkable. The Virtues Project has not only significantly influenced the language and  conduct of our students during daily activities, but has also created a ripple effect, extending its positive influence to parents and the wider community. Teachers find it much easier to manage our daily routines at school, with students now using language focused on cooperation, sharing, and love during socialization, sports, and games.

Feedback from parents and family friends underscores the profound changes witnessed in our students. One parent shared a heartwarming story about their four-year-old daughter’s newfound generosity and kindness, inspired by The Virtues Project. Formerly exhibiting selfish tendencies, the young girl surprised everyone by not only willingly sharing her belongings with her friends but also understanding the value of love, care, and happiness that comes from sharing. When asked why the change of heart, she said, “At school, teacher told us sharing our good things with others is good, sharing is a way of showing love and  care and also teacher said when you share you become happy. I want to be happy, mama”. This powerful testimony reflects the tangible impact The Virtues Project has on the character development and well-being of our students.

The Virtues Project has become an invaluable asset to our school, shaping a positive environment where virtues like sharing, love, and care are not just taught but lived. This heartening feedback from parents reaffirms the profound influence The Virtues
Project has on the growth and development of our children. We are immensely grateful to have The Virtues Project at our school and invite donors to support us in expanding this impactful initiative, fostering a culture of kindness and positive character traits that will shape the future of our students. Your contribution can help us continue this journey of creating a compassionate and virtuous learning environment for our children.
