Welcome to The 52 Virtues Project
Essence of the human spirit.
At the heart of all spiritual traditions are 360 virtues, described as the essence of the human spirit and the content of our character. Over 15 years ago, the founders of The Virtues Project developed The Family Virtues Guide containing 52 of these universal virtues - one for every week of the year. It was published to help parents bring out the best in their children and in themselves.
Through the eyes of children
The 52 Virtues Project explores these 52 virtues through the art and writing of children. The artworks and thoughts in the 52 Virtues screensaver, presentation and other products have all been created by children - what a wonderful way to spread messages of hope and inspiration throughout the world (while supporting schools and communities financially).
52 Virtues in 52 Countries in 52 Days
Our challenge is to have people from 52 different countries subscribe to the 52 "Virtues of The Week" in 52 days from launch! We hope to launch in June 2007. Can we do it? Join our mailing list by signing up in the orange box to the left, and you can be one of the first people to subscribe. You can also encourage your friends to join the challenge (and pay forward the gift of the virtues) by clicking on the "Pay it Forward" link to the left.
52 Virtues Projects in 52 Countries in 52 months
Imagine if you could come to this website and see how children in an African community interpret the 52 virtues, and then children from a European school and then other children from a community in Asia. This is our vision and you can be part of it.
