Label: Purpose & Activities

This group brings together Mormons, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs and Indigenous people in Southern California. They have developed a model for introducing children aged 5 to 13 years to various faiths. Young people learn about and come to appreciate not only their own religion, but many others as well. The group believes that an education in the religions of the world prepares children to grow up and become compassionate, understanding global citizens. Children also learn about service through community projects. For example, every month they feed 150 hungry and homeless people, as well as collecting clothing, toys, books and school supplies to help children in need.  First Drops hopes that the model they have developed will be replicated in their region and throughout the world.
