JGI Belgium promotes respect for all living things – Animals, People, and the Environment (APE ) – both in Belgium and elsewhere in the world.
In Belgium we launched the Roots&Shoots programme in the school year 2010-2011. JGI Belgium invites yougnsters 5-25 years old to take action for Animals, People and the Environment with projects in their own neighbourhood or beyond. We also organize workshops for underprivileged youth: have a look at our outdoor workshops in Molenbeek , Luik / Liège , and in the Zoniënwoud / Forêt de Soignes. You can sponsor these children as an individual, school or company.
To learn more about the Roots&Shoots programme and how to get involved, we invite you to look here.
