Sharing the Impact of the Roots of Empathy Program

Art and Stories by Children who are Changing the World

Everyone is the Same in a Different Way


What can Roots of Empathy teach the world? "That evrywone is the same in a difrinte way." [sic]

Of the thousands of pieces of artwork Roots of Empathy receives from across 3 continents, this 7 year old child has distilled in child-like language a very sophisticated concept – that as individuals in the world we are unique but we share the commonality of having the same range of feelings. When the word different is used, it is usually to separate, but this child has used it in an inclusive way. In school children learn to read. In Roots of Empathy children learn to lead. Razia is a changer.
