HEM Virtues is the initiative to reach out to schools, teachers and students over the web. With this initiative we will be able to reach to the remotest schools, provided they have the Internet connectivity. HEM Virtues will systematically dispense the moral value education. In the first phase, nine values have been selected. A total of three weeks (=21 days) will be spent on each value. It is said that it takes 21 days to form a habit. Therefore, each value is assigned a time limit of 3 weeks. It will take 27 weeks to compete nine values.
HEM Virtues will require two periods in a week, preferably one on Wednesday and one on Saturday. The learning activities will be on Wednesdays; while play activities will be on Saturdays. Children will get an opportunity to participate in games, puzzles and quizzes. They will be assessed and even get rewarded.
