Empathy Project envisions a future society where people of any background can contribute to a better world, humbly beginning from empathy.
Raising the theme of Solidarity: A Small Act of Kindness, we would like to invite our friends and networks from all over the world to come together in Empathy Project 2020 and take a role to create positive changes to the world. Starting from June, a series of programs will be delivered and the closing will be on Empathy Project from 4 – 6 December 2020.
Empathy Project develops a multi-stakeholder ecosystem in which every stakeholder (including the Government, NPOs, NGOs, CSOs, Businesses, Organizations, Media, and YOU) takes responsibility to be a part of solutions.
Empathy Project is designed to encourage all stakeholders to take a role in solving any problems closest to them through social creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Empathy Project 2018 delivered as a pilot project in Sembulang Village, Batam that engaged more than 1000 learners and collaborators.
Delivered three times in three different regions in Indonesia, Empathy Project 2019 engaged more than 3000 learners and collaborators.
Empathy Project 2020 will be delivered virtually due to COVID-19 outbreaks in Indonesia. This year, we aim to engage 5000 learners and collaborators.
The current pandemic situation has created an opportunity for a positive change as our mutual support is increasingly needed. This is the best time to promote more positive actions and create a responsible ecosystem.
Based on our research from February until May 2020, we found that only less than 10% of the digital contents circulating on the internet can be categorized as educational content. This percentage is mostly webinar for adults.
Children who their learning process affected during the pandemic, remain in need of practical and accessible materials to study at home. Thus, we need to work together to provide free, applicable, and practical learning contents to answer those needs.
Therefore, we came up with an idea to bring together experts and youth volunteers to donate their time to create educational clips both to teach new skills or an applicable small act of kindness for children, parents, and society. Even though large gatherings are being prohibited anyplace this year, it won’t be the reason for us to stop spreading the positive vibes, right?
Empathy Project 2020 highlights the theme of Solidarity where everyone can come together, taking a role to promote compassionate actions that can inspire others to do the same. We believe that anyone can be a #HistoryMaker, including you!
