As we get ready to kick off the season of giving, you can beat the crowds by doing your holiday shopping online during the Jane Goodall Institute’s (JGI) special 2014 Charity Auction!
On November 28, 2014 JGI we will kick off the auction with several rare, one-of-a-kind items that would make the perfect gift for anyone who supports Jane Goodall and the Jane Goodall Institute’s life-saving programs.
Each year Dr. Jane Goodall celebrates the United Nations International Day of Peace at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. And each year hundreds of thousands of youth involved in the Jane Goodall Institute's global youth program, Roots & Shoots, join in the celebration, taking their message of peace and hope into their local communities. This video is a compliation of peace day celebrations from around the world and how each Jane Goodall Institute office celebrated this special day in their own country.
This spring, JGI successfully completed its first crowdfunding campaign for Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots in Tanzania, raising over $16,000 via Pozible. The project aims to engage students from Sokoine Primary School in a study of local plants found in a nearby forest reserve.
Having protected the forest reserve for a number of years now, the students are eager to spread information about the medicinal benefit of plants found in the forest.
