About Embrace Virtues

"It is incumbent upon Spiritual Assemblies to provide the mothers with a well-planned program for the education of children, showing how, from infancy, the child must be watched over and taught. These instructions must be given to every mother to serve her as a guide, so that each will train and nurture her children in accordance with the Teachings." ~ 'Abdul'l-Bahá

In response to this requirement, Embrace Virtues was launched at the Bahá'í Temple on International Children's Day 2011. Embrace Virtues is non-denominational and inclusive of all religions – east and west.
