On 26th November the official launch of the innovative Roots of Empathy programme took place at a reception in the House of Lords in London. Hosted by Baronesses Walmsley and Benjamin, Roots of Empathy Founder/President and Canadian Ashoka Fellow Mary Gordon spoke about the programme and welcomed guests from government, education and supporting charities.
“We are very excited to be launching in England,” Gordon said. “We are grateful to the Big Lottery Improving Futures Fund for investing in a caring, peaceful and civil society by supporting the development of empathy in primary school children. Having visited one of the Roots of Empathy programmes in Lewisham, I am delighted with the integrity of the implementation and congratulate everyone involved, particularly the Pre-school Learning Alliance.”
