The Latham Foundation For The Promotion Of Humane Education
DescriptionFounded in 1918, the Foundation has worked to promote humane education, defined as "the use of education to nurture compassion and respect for living things." Aiming to teach kindness and respect for all living things, the Foundation works to help others by showing respect, compassion, and empathy toward animals, others, and all endeavors. The Foundation's mandate is to foster a deeper understanding of and sympathy with man's relations - the animals - who cannot speak for themselves; to inculcate the higher principles of humaneness upon which the unity and happiness of the world depend; to emphasize the spiritual fundamentals that lead to world friendship; and to promote the child's character through an understanding of universal kinship. Programs that focus on animal-assisted activities that demonstrate people and animals working together for the benefit of both, and include humane education are eligible to apply.
