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 milllion 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 mission is to build caring, peaceful, and civil societies through the development of empathy in children and adults. Our vision is to change the world, child by child.

Help children thrive by getting involved today.
