Reaching into the Middle East
Because of the commitment of many over the past 30 years, the Five Strategies of The Virtues Project™ are being practiced worldwide, in homes, in communities, and in workplaces. With your support, this message continues to reach more places through a network of Facilitators, Master Facilitators and Champions working together for a future characterized by kindness, justice, and integrity.
This quarter, your gifts are growing this network through enhanced training resources and through new partnerships. Because of you, more people in many new places are experiencing deeper meaning, purpose and joy in their lives through the awakening of their virtues. Here’s how your gifts are making this possible:
Enhanced Training Resources
- A new French translation of The Virtues Project Educator’s Guide will enable French-speaking teachers to learn ways to incorporate the Five Strategies of The Virtues Project into their everyday interactions with their students. Kids trained in these strategies develop habits of character that will serve them well throughout their lives.
- A major revision of the core training program for Facilitators of The Virtues Project will provide them with resources to lead workshops and share programs that introduce and reinforce the Five Strategies throughout the world. This version of the “Facilitator Manual” has been streamlined and designed for easy translation anywhere in the world.
- Re-creation of a treasured book by Linda Kavelin Popov, co-founder of The Virtues Project. Sacred Moments provides daily meditations on virtues such as excellence, discernment, honesty and trust, illuminated with quotes from the world's sacred texts and from the storehouse of wisdom of intellectuals, artists, writers and philosophers like Franz Kafka, William Blake, and Katherine Hepburn and accompanied by the founder's probing questions.
All of these products will be released in the coming months.
- A new partnership has been formed with Kaynounati, an organization in Jordan that will make virtues training and resources available throughout the Middle East. The Five Strategies are being promoted as powerful tools with practical steps to empower humans to live within their best, to grow their gifts of character.
Thank you for making all of this possible. With your help, The Virtues Project continues to inspire and mobilize people worldwide to commit acts of service and generosity, to heal violence with virtues. Your gifts truly transform lives -- and communities -- around the world!!
