In urban centers and rural villages, in homes, schools, businesses, and community centers across the globe, Bahá’ís hailing from every walk of life are engaged, as members of growing, vibrant communities, in promoting at the grassroots the well-being of the entire human race. Through a series of activities involving children, junior youth, youth, and adults, these citizens of the world are rallying their friends and neighbors, their families and co-workers to participate in the transformation of society. The vital spirit of these efforts has been captured in a collection of images from every continent, which you are invited to view here.
