HAIFA, Israel — A collection of 500 photographs of Baha’i activities around the world is now available for viewing and downloading on the official Baha’i Web site.

The link to the specific Web section, titled “Attaining the dynamics of growth: Images from five continents,” is www.bahai.org/attaining/.

The photographs, commissioned by the Baha’i World Centre, were among thousands done as part of a project leading up to the International Baha’i Convention, held last spring in Haifa. Delegates from almost every country in the world participated in the convention, making it a showcase for the diversity of the human family.

The images show Baha’is in their home communities participating in the core activities of study circles, children’s classes, junior youth activities, and devotional gatherings. A separate section is devoted to social and economic development.
