Connected Kindness aims to create an awareness of the connection between humans and animals and how kindness bridges the gap between individuals of all ages, abilities, and species. The emphasis for Connected Kindness is on mutual understanding and awareness of our actions when interacting with others, whether those “others” are human or animal. Utilizing components of a nationally recognized humane education curriculum, Topfield’s “Connected Kindness” curriculum interweaves social justice and humane education aspects into a larger ecological perspective of the connection between all living beings, including the equines with whom Topfield partners in all our activities daily.
