Roots & Shoots South Africa forms part of the Jane Goodall Institute South Africa, which is a non-profit organisation comprised of volunteers ranging from young children, teenagers, young adults and the more mature adults.
Roots & Shoots, a worldwide youth organization was formed by Dr. Jane Goodall to create awareness amongst youngsters on key issues such as the environment, animals and helping communities in need. By providing young people with positive experiences within their community and the natural world, Roots & Shoots aims to establish an ethic of care for the land, its people, and its animals; to cultivate an understanding of the interdependence of all life on earth; and to inspire love, respect, admiration, and a high regard for its value.
Roots & Shoots strives to do this in a practical and enjoyable manner, and participants can look forward to lots of hard work together with lots of fun and laughter!
THE GOALS OF ROOTS & SHOOTS

To help young people develop self-respect, confidence in themselves and hope for the future by participation and creation of different types of educational programmes and community outreach projects.
