Children’s Charter for Compassion  – Through the Eyes of a Child

Compassion means to feel what others are feeling – especially when they are feeling pain or sadness. Compassion is inside of all of us. It doesn’t matter if you are a girl or a boy, how old you are, what country you live in, where or if you worship, or the color of your skin. We can all show compassion for others.


If we want the world to be a caring, respectful,

and happy place to live, we must

all practice compassion. 


When we act with compassion, we treat others as we wish to be treated. We show kindness. We show understanding. We try to make others feel better. We put others before ourselves.
