Jane Goodall, anthropologist extraordinaire, started a program in Tanzania in 1991 educating youths “environmental issues and humanitarian values with a special focus on group interaction” called Roots and Shoots. Starting with those 16 students, she built this organization into a global network with 8,000 groups in 100 countries; in China, there are offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanchang, and Chengdu.
Our Mission: To foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for animals, the environment, and the human community. We believe that change is already taking place!
