Building Caring,

Peaceful and Civil


Roots of Empathy develops empathy in children today so they can build the world that they deserve.

We’ve reached 1.2 million children globally with our school based programs and we have research to prove impact. Roots of Empathy reduces aggression, increases sharing, caring and inclusion, and promotes resilience, well-being and positive mental health.

Our vision is to change the world, child by child.

Help children thrive by getting involved today.
