A new foundation – inspired by the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith (founded more than a century and a half ago) – is being launched on 23 May, one of the most significant days in the Bahá’í calendar.
23 May is the ‘Declaration of the Bab’ – it commemorates the day in 1844 when the Bab (the herald of the Bahá’í Faith) announced in Shiraz, Persia (now Iran), that he was the herald of a new messenger of God. It is one of the nine holy days of the year when work is suspended.
Managed by Tim Melville, who adopted the Bahá’í Faith when he was 15, the Anis Foundation is being launched to teach children moral education and a more spiritual way of living – to bind people and cultures together in their quest for a vision of humanity as one global family.
Tim, who is experienced in voluntary work with children and young people, sees a lot of children who have ‘lost their way’. He said: “Many of these children exhibit signs of a lack of moral education, which makes me very sad.”
