The welfare of any segment of humanity is inextricably bound up with the welfare of the whole
Bahá'ís do not wait for the Kingdom of God which has been promised by all religions to appear on earth – they work actively on building it. Baha’is have a plan, the Divine Guidance and the ardent desire to offer to humankind this treasured gift: the new world in which all people will feel as one united family.
"The betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds, through commendable and seemly conduct". — Bahá’u’lláh
"My object is none other than the betterment of the world and the tranquillity of its peoples. The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established". — Bahá’u’lláh
The Bahá'í administrative system is a prototype of the future world order. Bahá’u’lláh’s followers around the world work on turning it into reality and advancing this model which in years to come at the most difficult time would help humanity find refuge.
Consolidation and expansion can be achieved in two ways: through education and through practical deeds. This approach is different for different age groups: the Baha’i Faith offers separate programs for the spiritual education of children, junior youth, and youth and adults. All of the programs pursue the common aim: to provide participants with knowledge and encourage them to be involved in the activities for the betterment of the world.
