“Changing the world child by child.” Roots of Empathy Baby Celebration
This year has been an incredible one for the internationally recognized program, Roots of Empathy. From a video feature on BBC World Hacks with over 18 million views to the founder and president Mary Gordon receiving the Governor General’s Innovation Award which recognizes Canadian individuals, teams and organizations for their outstanding accomplishments, it’s safe to say Root of Empathy is making a tremendous impact and “changing the world child by child.”
This year’s annual Roots of Empathy Baby Celebration will be honouring the world’s youngest teachers: the Roots of Empathy babies. For the past 10 months, approximately 1,500 children across the Region in the Niagara Catholic District School Board, the District School Board of Niagara, Conseil Scolaire Catholique Mon Avenir, and EarlyON Child and Family Centres had the opportunity to show and be shown empathy through the lens of the Roots of Empathy program. The event will take place on Friday June 15, 2018 at Niagara Catholic District School Board office at 427 Rice Road, Welland. The doors will open at 9:45 a.m. with the celebration ending at 11:30 a.m. There will be approximately 90 guests in attendance….
