About This Charity

About Our Charity
Roots of Empathy is a powerful idea whose time has come. Instead of chasing end results – injustice, violence and other societal problems – this award-winning, evidence-based non-profit is supporting children so they can create a better world in the next generation.
The program involves classroom visits by an infant and parent. Through guided observation, children describe the baby's development and feelings and reflect on their own feelings and those of others (empathy). They become more socially and emotionally literate, more caring and inclusive and more likely to challenge injustice when they find it.
Roots of Empathy has been endorsed by the Dalai Lama, the World Health Organization and the Assembly of First Nations. Today it has reached nearly 800,000 children worldwide. In Canada, it is delivered in English and French in rural, urban, and remote communities. Roots of Empathy’s sibling program, Seeds of Empathy, fosters empathy and early literacy skills in childcare settings.
