Today, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) joins the World Health Organization (WHO) and other organizations and individuals around the globe in commemorating World Health Day.
JGI is committed to supporting a broad array of measures that ensure the health of local communities in areas where we work to protect chimpanzees and their habitat. By improving the health of these rural populations, we can significantly enhance their quality of life and enable them to become partners in conserving the natural resources upon which they depend.
On Saturday, February 25, 2012, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) turned 35!
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.
