About ShareTree

ShareTree is a movement to evolve character, culture and community, so people can live with greater purpose and meaning.

We are a registered charity and technology-enabled initiative that empowers greater equity and harmony in society through sharing between individuals, schools, businesses and community organisations.

We do this primarily through character education and acknowledgement.

Through the discovery and acknowledgement of the character qualities within ourselves and others we can have a greater understanding of – and connection to – our purpose in life.

We deliver Cultivating Character and Culture programs to individuals, schools, businesses and community organisations via face-to-face workshops and also our FREE ShareTree App.

Our Cultivating Character and Culture programs are based on the work of The Virtues Project™, a global initiative that inspires the practice of virtues in everyday life to bring about kindness, justice, and integrity around the world. The Virtues Project has been honoured by the United Nations during the International Year of the Family as a “model global program for families of all cultures”.

ShareTree is not aligned to any religion. Our character programs transcend faith, race, and cultural groups.

ShareTree was founded by Steven Farrugia in 2013 as part of his personal life-long purpose to bring about meaningful change to humanity through sharing.
