Nurturing Younger Generations (A Widening Embrace Extra)

September 22, 2018, in Videos > Short Film, by

Nurturing Younger Generations is a companion video to A Widening Embrace, an innovative documentary film commissioned by the Universal House of Justice about the community-building efforts of the Baha’i world, as seen through the eyes of local populations.

Across the globe, followers of Baha’u’llah and their friends are striving in earnest to contribute to the well-being of their communities and the advancement of society. In this short film, we hear about the transformative effect of children’s classes on their participants, their parents (particularly the education of mothers), and their communities. We likewise hear about the transformation of junior youth and how they are striving to improve their neighbourhoods. 

Approximate running time: 19.5 minutes.

The Baha’i World Centre also released two other extras which you can watch here:
