About Roots & Shoots

About Roots & Shoots

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is a youth-led action programme aimed at young people of all ages. The programme was founded in 1991 by Dr Jane Goodall under the Jane Goodall Institute, and it promotes the values of compassion and respect for all living things, as well as intercultural understanding and solidarity among all peoples.

Roots & Shoots empowers young people to create positive change for people, animals and the environment, by providing the tools needed for them to initiate, and lead, projects and campaigns that make a difference.

Beginning with 12 students in Tanzania who wanted to help solve the problems in their local community - the Roots & Shoots programme is now a global movement, with over 150,000 active groups in over 130 countries.

Roots & Shoots Malaysia was established in January 2015. Today, we have over 10 active groups in various schools… and growing fast!

Making A Difference

It's Up To YOU!
With Roots & Shoots, the possibilities are as wide as your imagination! Members can customise projects to meet their individual and group needs. You can start a project as an individual, or with a friend, a group of friends, club members, classmates or even involve the whole school! No project is too big - or too small, because we believe every positive action brings positive impact to the world around them.

Remember - as long as it is a project that benefits people, animals, or the environment (or all three!) - you can make it your Roots & Shoots initiative!

Like-Minded Friends Around The World
Roots & Shoots is a powerful youth-driven network that fosters a supportive environment where young people (and the young at heart!) come together to share ideas and inspiration, implement successful service projects and participate in special events and campaigns.

Because of our huge membership base globally, we offer a wealth of resources and networking opportunities to connect like-minded change-makers like yourself. On the local front - our Roots & Shoots Malaysia team is always ready to assist with any help you may need to get your project off the ground!
