About Character Day Bahamas

At the PACE Foundation, part of our mission is to empower teenagers to make good decisions. We know that character education plays a significant role in helping people of all ages in their decision making and this is why we are excited to bring the Character Day movement to the Bahamas!

The PACE Foundation, Bahamas AIDS Foundation & Lyford Cay Foundations FOCUS programme, have partnered to host Character Day in The Bahamas with funding from the Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc.
 

We invite schools, business, churches, civic groups, non-profit organizations, families and individuals to join us during the month of October. Be a part of this global conversation about the importance of developing and improving character. This event is devoted to developing who we are, and who we want to be.
