Jane Goodall Institute (Singapore)
The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a global nonprofit focused on inspiring individual action to improve the understanding, welfare and conservation of great apes and to safeguard the planet we all share. Our mission is based in Dr. Jane Goodall’s belief that the well-being of our world relies on people taking an active interest in all living things.
JGI Singapore (JGIS) was founded in 2007 to continue Dr. Goodall's work in Singapore. Since our inception, we have helped to educate and support Singaporeans, particularly young people, in addressing local issues in three main areas, which Dr. Goodall consistently found are inextricably linked: human community, animal welfare and the natural environment.
We believe everyone can make a difference once they have the relevant knowledge and are inspired to take action. That’s why our goal is to nurture the next generation of 'Jane Goodalls’ by empowering & inspiring young people to take action.
To achieve our goal, we developed three key programmes:
Roots & Shoots service learning programme & Eco-literacy classes
Public talks & initiatives on environment-animals-community issues
