Compassionate Citizen Project



"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
- Mahatma Gandhi

Animals are part of the natural world, yet throughout history, people have often treated animals more like things than feeling beings. For today's young people, developing empathy for animals can be a key step towards developing empathy for and rejecting violence against all beings, including humans. It is important, therefore, that students learn that the animals with whom we share this planet are, in many ways, not so different from us .

For today's young people, developing compassion for animals can be a key step towards developing compassion for - and rejecting violence against - all beings, including humans and developing respect for the environment. It is important, therefore, that students learn that the animals with whom we share this planet are, in many ways, not so different from us.
Our Honorable Director madam is an active member of PETA, India and therefore compassion towards animals and birds are integrated in our curriculum through Compassionate Citizen, PETA India's programme for teaching children humane attitudes and respect towards animals. The Compassionate Citizen programme - which includes video, presentation and discussion components - touches the hearts of students and teachers alike by giving them a better understanding of how we can show compassion for animals.
DPS, Bokaro has made bird feeders, fish ponds etc to promote students' understanding that animals have much in common with us and are living, feeling beings to be treated with respect and compassion, regardless of how small or 'strange' they may seem . They are encouraged to participate in drama, skit, poster making and essay writing on various topics related to wildlife.
