Summary

Since 1991, The Virtues Project (TVP) has been inspiring people of all cultures to live by our highest values, our virtues. TVP has reached over 115 countries with its Five Strategies, ways to live out the virtues. They have been demonstrated to empower people to live more authentic meaningful lives, families to raise children of compassion and integrity, educators to create safe, caring, and high performing learning communities, and leaders to encourage ethics in workplace and community.

Challenge

In today's world, tolerance for people who are "different from me" is in rapid decline; tendencies toward aggressive, even violent, behaviors are increasing; bullying is rampant. Training parents, teachers and leaders in virtues strategies can reverse these trends. The reach of TVP is broad, but its impact is only as deep as the ability and resources of virtues experts in each country. That in turn is constrained by lack of funds to train new experts and to provide materials in local languages.

Solution

Your gift will increase the capability of facilitators to equip children, parents, teachers, students, and leaders with virtues strategies and simple ways to practice them. Your gift will 1) Train more facilitators by providing financial support where resources are limited. 2) Make training materials and other resources broadly available through more local language translations. 3) Extend the impact of virtues facilitators through a more capable and supportive website at www.virtuesproject.com.

Long-Term Impact

This project has supported projects in Sri Lanka, Fiji, Kenya and Tanzania. It has funded an Italian translation of materials. Each new initiative expands the impact of the virtues strategies globally. Home, school, and community problems lessen as parents, teachers, leaders, other adults and children learn to communicate in ways that promote understanding, respect and self-esteem in themselves and others. The culture of family, school and community becomes one of peace, unity, economic growth.
