I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. And I am so proud of the amazing work that you continue to produce for this programme, on a daily basis. The projects covered in this newsletter speak for themselves.
Two words come to mind when I think of Roots & Shoots; Celebration – of all that we have achieved so far and continue to achieve.
And, Inspiration. Where does inspiration come from? Who inspires us?
One person I know is Dr Jane Goodall who has inspired millions of people around the world. What a wonderful legacy. Preferable over saying ‘I have no hope’ or ‘what difference can I make?’
But inspiration, can be even closer to home; from our family, friends, neighbours, teachers and even our pets. My father was a huge inspiration to me in his lifetime, and although he sadly passed away this year, it is his inspiration and his legacy that inspires me to keep going.
And, I am inspired by all of you.
That is our mission for each and every one of us here at R&S. R&S is not just a programme, it is a way of life, a roadmap for living. It is therefore our duty and privilege to pass that torch on to our children, grand children and great grandchildren.
So thank you to all of you who continue to make that difference.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Executive Director, Education
