Harness the Power of Compassion

Umano supports initiatives that build holistic empathy for humans, animals, and the environment. 

Humans, animals, and the environment are interdependent and interconnected; the well-being of one affects the well-being of the others.

Empathy for all three can be nurtured anytime by anyone, through storytelling and education.

We support changemakers who are solving critical problems around the world by helping them build resilient and impactful initiatives that foster holistic empathy.

Your generous donation will put empathy into action today. 

Together we can achieve sustainable and inspiring change to create a more empathic and compassionate world for all.
