Roots & Shoots
Through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is dedicated to cultivating a generation of global citizens. To maintain and build the Roots & Shoots network and our educational programs on the ground, we rely upon the help and support of our members, individual donors, corporations, foundations and other organizations. The ways that we can work together are diverse.

Here we are at the beginning of 2012 about to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Jane Goodall Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program. Over the last two decades, Roots & Shoots has grown from just 12 high school students from nine different schools in Tanzania to a worldwide movement of young people who are dedicated to realizing a vision for a better world. I couldn’t be more proud of what they have accomplished.
