Bahá’í schools in Swaziland

from Roxanne Lalonde

The Bahá’í schools in Mbabane, Swaziland, (the capital city) are involved in many aspects of moral, spiritual, environmental and social education. I consider it a success whenever I see a child's eyes light up or her face become suffused with a sense of wonder when she encounters an interesting or bizarre feature of nature. If there aren't opportunities to take kids outside, the next best thing is watching Animal Planet or any nature programs on TV, especially those about interesting animals. Some of the children I know would rather watch those programs than cartoons and are growing up with a deeper appreciation of nature than many adults.
