“There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace.”

Kofi A. Annan,

Secretary General of the United Nations

Power of Goodness collects stories from the lives of real people that depict instructional moments in how to rely on the power of goodness in difficult situations and the amazing results of doing so. The stories are written for children and illustrated by children in ways compelling to people of any age, depicting the excitement of action, the joy of seeing from new perspectives and the encouragement of small acts that make big differences, through books, exhibitions, talks and short workshops. Our vision is to inspire readers, listeners, viewers, and participants to act with courage and to bring good into the lives around them.

Little Star psychologists in Chechnya, Peace Place in Indonesia, and Alfred University's Art Force in the USA use this peace education resource to support students, parents, teachers, counselors, and community members.

Our vision is that readers of Power of Goodness will be inspired to act with courage and to bring good into the lives around them.
