Root Foundation - Baha'i Inspired Non-profit Organization

Postby lp1844 » Thu May 08, 2008 11:20 pm

Our Mission

Root Foundation, in the spirit of educator Martha Root, exists to advance human civilization by providing start-up funding and planning expertise to qualified emerging schools in rural areas of developing nations, schools that serve students from poor families and that provide training in character development necessary for social and economic development.

Vision

Root Foundation is a Bahá’í-inspired organization that seeks to help establish schools founded on the belief that individuals have innate value whose full potential can be realized through mutual respect and cooperation. Our belief is that it is mankind’s destiny to create a society in which

* Justice is firmly established,
* The extremes of wealth and poverty are eliminated
* Racial, social and political prejudices cease to exist
* The equality of men and women is a reality
* The idea of the oneness of humanity pervades all mankind
* The diverse nations of the world are fused into one commonwealth

We see education that reflects these beliefs to be a potent means of realizing individual potential and as a powerful force in the transformation of society.

Right on, Brett, and i surely share your appreciation of Martha Root and the fine visions of her Foundation, but alas, apathy continues to "run" rampant in our little GT... :sad: richard
