“There is no better approach to teaching children the value of human life than instilling in them an appreciation for all life. If you can teach a child to respect and protect the smallest and most maligned among us – as PETA’s humane-education programme does – you create a better citizen.”
— Anupam Kher

“Compassion is what I learned from my mother and, for me, all children should imbibe this virtue of caring and feeling for all living souls. Compassionate Citizen, I feel, is the perfect programme to help children develop respect for animals.”
— Jackie Shroff

“My children have always been surrounded by rescued animals at home and that has inculcated love, compassion and respect in them. An educational programme like Compassionate Citizen will help develop empathy and appreciation for animals, the environment they live in and people.”
— Raveena Tandon Thadani

“Including Compassionate Citizen in school curricula will go a long way in building a new generation of socially aware children who have a better understanding [of] and respect for animals and the environment they live in.”
— Lara Dutta

“One of the best ways to knock out cruelty to animals is to teach compassion to young people. Animals need us in their corner. With violence seemingly all around us, it is more important than ever that we teach lessons of respect and kindness in the classroom.”
– Mangte Chungneijang Mary Kom
