Summary

The Virtues Project (TVP) inspires people of all cultures to live by our highest values, our virtues. Our Five Strategies offer ways to live out the virtues. If you employ these Strategies, you can experience a more authentic, meaningful life; you can learn to raise children of compassion and integrity; your teachers can create safe, caring, and high performing learning communities; and as leaders you can encourage ethics in workplace and community. TVP has reached over 135 countries since 1991.

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 create resources and training to equip people like you and me with the Five Strategies of TVP and simple ways to practice them. It will make more of these resources, training and events available online, further extending the reach of TVP. Your gift will also expand opportunities to nurture virtues facilitators and champions and will provide access to resources even where funds are limited. Where feasible, your gift may also support translations of materials into common languages.

Long-Term Impact

Virtues are at the heart of meaning in every culture and belief system, from indigenous oral traditions to the world's Sacred texts. Lack of tolerance, aggressive or violent behavior and bullying are trends that are reversed by awakening the virtues within each of us. Virtues empower us to promote understanding, respect and self-esteem in ourselves and others. Your support enables the culture of families, schools and communities to become a culture of peace, justice, unity and economic growth.
