Doriane and Friends in Burnaby

Two years ago, a group of Baha'is in Burnaby, British Columbia reached out to meet some of the newcomers to their city and engage in meaningful conversations, and as a result offered resources for the spiritual education of the children. The program was welcomed by families and a friendship deepened among the groups as many obstacles were overcome.

Two years later, the teachers are nurturing the tender hearts and minds of 30 children in three different grades. Together with a few youth from the neighbourhood and in collaboration with the parents, they are working to strengthen the roots of the educational program in the neighbourhood.

Here you will hear Doriane, a member of the community whose children attend the classes, speak about their impact on her children and on the community and the noble aspirations she has for her neighbourhood. She is being intereviewed by one of the teachers.
