About the Freedom & Virtue Institute:
The Freedom & Virtue Institute exists to educate people about how human beings flourish and about how best to help the poor and underprivileged in their communities; to teach children who are trapped in dependency and entitlement that through hard work and character development they will be able to take care of themselves and their dependents; and to equip the jobless with the skills and attitudes they need to secure and keep good jobs.
