Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots UAE

Roots & Shoots encourages children to implement practical positive change for people, animals and the environment by providing teachers with free resources and a place to share their success stories with the world.

Join Our Twinning Programme

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots manages a twinning programme between schools in the UAE and schools in the United Kingdom.

This is a great opportunity to learn about another group’s homeland, environment, wildlife, culture, religion and languages. Use technology such as email and video conferencing to give your students a personalised look at your partner school and its students and activities. The perspectives you gain from another culture will encourage your students to express themselves clearly.
