Why is this work important?

 Each of us was born with empathy. But as a result of technology and competitive materialistic culture, empathy tends to get suppressed and subconsciously devalued.

In this diverse and globalized world, empathy is an essential foundation to unite people. The ability to empathically relate to oneself and others -to understand, care and act with compassion- is vital to our lives enabling us to live peacefully, get along, collaborate more effectively and thrive as a civil society that respects all beings on earth including animals and nature.

 Empathy raises young people to build a culture that cares. 

And we care.
