In the world today, healthy reasoning is the key to success for children. Reasoning is knowledge acquired through reading and experience. Problem solving skills are enhanced with math training. These two skill sets function from an established belief system. Healthy reasoning is the maturing of these three elements: Reading, Math and Character Development. The advantaged of the world train their children accordingly. Unfortunately many underprivileged children are being left behind without hope, resulting in even greater disparity between groups.
By teaching reading, math and character development to less-advantaged children worldwide their ability to compete globally is realized and their life experiences are advanced. The power to succeed is in every child; the ability to communicate is a critical determinant.
The Child of Virtue Charity (COV) was created to address this issue head-on. Our mission is: Peace through Understanding; Understanding through Education; Education through Reasoning.
Ignorance is slavery, it’s the root of fear. It nourishes the branches of anger and produces the thorns of prejudice. Plato declared that ignorance is the “slave of all evil.” The most violent elements of our local, regional, and global societies lie in ignorance. German philosopher, Goethe, said, “Nothing is more terrible than ignorance in action.” The saddest aspect of ignorance is that it’s not a condition of conscious choice but most often one of circumstance.
The disadvantaged are susceptible to ignorance through illiteracy. Illiteracy traps people in darkness where reasoning becomes nullified and questioning is stopped. Reading crushes ignorance. Education emancipates the enslaved. Understanding smothers anger. Knowledge is the mother of wonder. Knowledge disarms ignorance one book at a time.
As we’ve stated, peace is the opposite of fear. Peace is the comfort and tranquility of understanding. Peace is the calmness and serenity of tolerance. This program breaks through the walls and barriers of ignorance, fear, control and abuse without prejudice and without the shackles of tradition. Utilizing the SamiTales Programs, Child of Virtue is the vehicle to accomplish this miracle. Working together these programs promote an unwavering foundation of reading and character development for children and young people universally to enable them to adapt, adjust and flourish in this ever changing, increasingly complex and demanding world.
