One in 5 people in the world go to bed hungry, while millions of tonnes of food products are wasted at the same time. This project will educate children how we can solve food shortages by consuming with care, reducing wastage and producing sustainably.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
