Education is at the very heart of our work, and we are committed to helping teachers convey lessons of compassion within their prescribed subjects. Teaching pupils to have empathy for other beings is essential to raising kind, compassionate citizens. In learning to respect and care for animals, pupils become empowered to take responsibility for their actions. They also apply the concepts of respect and kindness toward animals in their own lives and help build safe and caring communities.
"Why is compassion not part of our established curriculum, an inherent part of our education? Compassion, awe, wonder, curiosity, exhaltation, humility - these are the very foundations of any real civilisation, no longer the prerogatives, the preserves of any one church, but belonging to everyone, every child in every home, in every school."
- Yehudi Menuhin
