On Moral Education: Family Friendly, Baha'i-inspired

Owusu is one of 22,000 Ghanaian students in the "Enlightening the Hearts" literacy program, aimed at helping young people age nine to 15 read and write in their own language. Operated by the Baha'i-inspired Olinga Foundation for Human Development, the program gave training in more than 260 remote primary and junior secondary schools in Ghana's Western Region since 2000, Baha'i World News Service reported Monday. ...

The program also incorporates elements of moral education drawn from religious scriptures. "Why I like this program mostly is the moral aspect of the book which will no doubt help children to become good citizens in the future," said Ayyub Yaku Aidoo, a teacher at the Samreboi primary school.
