Enthusiasm and chivalry
Here's an enthusiastic bunch, based in Wichita, Kansas, that I've just stumbled across. Although their approach is quite different to that of The Adventures of Mali & Keela, the concept - of using tales of adventure and daring to engage with children and then to inspire and educate about virtues - is very similar.
Their program is called Chivalry for Children and I came to learn of them through Allen Leddon's blog.
In his blog Allen talks about choosing the virtues Honesty, Loyalty, Perseverance, Charity, Humility, Courtesy and Courage for their program designed to bring chivalry back to modern life.
I'm sure Keela's parents - the King and Queen in The Adventures of Mali & Keela - would wholeheartedly approve!
