Sharing the Impact of the Roots of Empathy Program

Art and Stories by Children who are Changing the World

Helping a Friend


A time when I helped my friend who was sad was when I was playing with my friends. My other friend asked if she could play but they said no. So I quit the game and went to play with her.

In the Roots of Empathy program, children are empowered to advocate for fairness and challenge injustice, such as bullying. Tabassum’s artwork shows how children who are bystanders and onlookers can bravely stand up for fairness and challenging cruelty and injustice. Tabassum is a changer.
