Teaching Compassion

How about teaching children compassion for all sentient beings? That is what our newest grantee Mensch Tier Bildung is doing in Germany. This innovative organization carries out emancipatory educational work on the social human-animal relationship. They offer workshops for children and teenagers at schools and educational institutions across the country to awaken compassion and stimulate critical thinking by encouraging participants to confront the prevailing relationship between humans and animals. The aim of the organization is to provide children the tools and the knowledge to develop a critical awareness of social issues, and ultimately become informed and responsible citizens and thus better stewards of the earth!
