Species: Homo conscious
Our work is all about children and young people. When the children and young people of our world are sick and suffering, whether from material poverty or spiritual poverty or both, then we can know that the future of our world will also be one of sickness and suffering.
This work is about making a home out of the whole world where everyone feels they are related to everyone else; even if they are not related by external things such as blood, culture, country, religion and so on. A home that all children and young people will be able to be proud of and depend on when they are in need. A home where all youngsters can be loved and nurtured to reach their full potential as well balanced, happy members of our one large human family.
What is Shanti's Vision?
Shanti Action Clubs
We intend to help encourage and facilitate young people into community volunteering all over the world.
We intend to open homes and schools all over the world for:
All children will receive a normal education as well as special education in morality, dispute mediation, constructive-problem solving and leadership. They will also be encouraged from a young age into community volunteering, so they may acquire a strong sense of community belonging. Once they reach sixteen years of age, they will be moved to our other homes in other countries, and mixed with other young people from our other homes all over the world. In this way we hope they will develop a 'Global Citizen' type mentality as they get used to living with other young people from many different cultural backgrounds.
When they graduate they may return to their place of origin where it is hoped they will have the potential to become pillars of the community. This way they may help resolve the world's problems beginning at a community level.
