Creating a world where compassion and kindness are the basis of our thoughts and practice
Compassion Matters, a project from The Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion, aims to create a kinder and happier society by inspiring children and young people to lead compassionate lives.
We achieve this by sharing our compassion and ethics courses with schools and education charities. Our learning resources equip children to gain a foundational understanding and to think critically about ethical issues. We also support children to learn skills to support their social and emotional skills through contemplation and reflection.
We help children to understand that compassion and related concepts, such as courage, justice and happiness, are the key not only to a happier, more harmonious society but also to individual well-being.
