I am delighted that the education charity Human Values Foundation , of which I am proudly a patron, has launched a book of stories from children around the world about the values that inspire them most. The forty stories and many illustrations are drawn from entries to a competition held to mark World Values Day in October last year.
To mark World Values Day on 20th October 2016, the Human Values Foundation issued a global invitation to schools and other organisations involved with the education of children aged from 7 to 11 to take part in a story writing competition. Children were encouraged to write an original and creative story about their favourite value.
Inspiring stories about values flooded in from around the world. There were stories from the UK, India, Africa and right across the Middle East – with different perspectives but with one common theme. All of them showed what a powerful influence positive values have on children’s lives.
