Roots & Shoots

Founded in 1991 by Dr. Jane Goodall, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is a youth service program for young people of all ages. Forres Preparatory School became the first registered member in the Western Cape of the International Roots & Shoots program.

How we do it

Every year, Forres children identify a people, animal and earth project in their community and design campaigns around them. In choosing and driving these campaigns children develop the kind of compassionate leadership our world needs and a belief that they can make a difference in the world.
