A Covenant for Honouring Children

By Raffi

“We find these joys to be self-evident: That all children are created whole, endowed with innate intelligence, with dignity and wonder, worthy of respect. The embodiment of life, liberty and happiness, children are original blessings, here to learn their own song. Every girl and boy is entitled to love, to dream and belong to a loving “village.” And to pursue a life of purpose”

Child Honouring Principles

  • Respectful love
  • Diversity: “is about abundance: of human dreams, intelligences, cultures, and cosmologies; of earthly splendors and ecosystems. Introducing children to biodiversity and human diversity at an early age builds on their innate curiosity. There’s a world of natural wonders to discover, and a wealth of cultures, of ways to be human. Comforted by how much we share, were able to delight in our differences.”
  • Caring Community
  • Conscious parenting
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Nonviolence
  • Safe Environments
  • Sustainability
  • Ethical Commerce
