The following content below are excerpts from http://www.janegoodall.ca/roots-shoots.php

“Roots spread underground and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem small and weak, but to reach the light they can break through brick walls. Imagine the brick walls are all the problems humans have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of roots and shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. YOU can make the world a better place.”

– Dr. Jane Goodall
