Jain Public school takes up compassionate citizen community Programme with PETA for protecting and ethical
treatment of animals
Jain Public School, The School for Leaders, in association with PETA, The People For The Ethical treatment of Animals,
has pioneered a great initiative. It has started the Compassionate Citizen programme. This programme aims at enhancing the
students understanding that all animals are living beings who deserve our consideration, respect and protection. Animals
often experience the same needs as humans. They have fascinating characteristics and abilities and they deserve our empathy
and appreciation. This programme aims to help students understand how human regard for animals has changed and developed as
our knowledge of them has increased. The programmme would empower students by helping them recognize the advancements we
have made as a society in moving away from the use of animals and show them how to take responsibility of helping animals
in their own life.
