Naw-Ruz receptions promote harmony

BAHA’I WORLD CENTRE, 6 April 2017, (BWNS) — In August 1868, Baha’u’llah and his companions arrived by sea to the prison-city of Akka under an Ottoman edict of perpetual banishment. His exile resulted in the Holy Land becoming home to the spiritual and administrative heart of the Baha’i world. Those serving at the Baha’i World Centre have since those earliest days tried to exemplify, through their life and work, a consciousness of the oneness of humanity.

The annual celebration of Naw-Ruz, the Baha’i New Year, has been an occasion when the Baha’i World Centre has brought together in fellowship a diverse range of people from society. In addition to a commemoration at the World Centre itself, a set of receptions are held in Akka and Jerusalem around the same time.

Catalyzing an education revolution: Brookings Institution highlights Baha’i-inspired program

WASHINGTON D.C., 19 March 2017, (BWNS) — In the last twenty years, remarkable strides have been achieved in providing access to education for children around the world. However, research in the field of education is showing that increased schooling has not automatically led to increased learning. The United Nations estimates that 250 million children are not able to read, write, or perform basic math, whether they have been to school or not.

Addressing what it calls a “learning crisis”, the Brookings Institution—a major think tank in the United States—started an initiative in 2015 called “Millions Learning”. The study sought to identify educational interventions where not only access to schools was improving, but also learning itself.
