Real change requires holistic empathy

We support initiatives that foster holistic empathy

Holistic empathy recognizes that the well-being of humans, animals, and the environment are interconnected.

Building Empathy

Billions of dollars have been poured into tackling issues like poverty, inequity, and climate change. Important progress has been made, yet we are still facing immeasurable suffering. Holistic empathy is essential to addressing complex global challenges.

Storytelling and purposeful training are the most effective methods of building empathy.
