Social and Economic Development: An expression of faith in action

Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and center your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements.” ~ Baha'u'llah

Bahá’í development projects are a global enterprise where Bahá'ís act locally to learn to translate Bahá'u'lláh’s teachings into action to resolve problems.  Organic urban gardens . . . a children's theatre company . . .child and junior youth day camps . . . literacy programs . . . community peace festivals . . . community beautification projects . . . a parent university . . . women on the move . . . These are just some of the endeavors underway across the United States that illustrate lines of action taken through grassroots initiatives and evolutionary growth.  Such activities undertaken by Bahá’í communities range in scale and sustainability. Each strives to put in place community-wide learning and capacity building while addressing immediate needs.

Share here examples of endeavors that channel the talents and energies of individuals in your community in service to humanity.
