Global Empathy Education

The Research: At an early age, children learn to recognize similarities and differences. What if we could help transform this recognition into appreciation, both at the individual and cultural level? 

The Lunch Project's Global Empathy Education Program equips individuals with 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration. Empathy creates a more inclusive community and a willingness to make a positive impact.

Studies show that when young people have empathy, they display:

  • More classroom engagement
  • Higher academic achievement
  • Better communication skills
  • Lower likelihood of bullying
  • Less aggressive behaviors and emotional disorders
  • More positive relationships

TLP develops empathy through education, cultural respect and empowerment

Our program begins by teaching kids about Tanzania and the Maasai culture through a unique and engaging presentation. The presentation combined with our research based, common-core aligned, and literacy focused curriculum takes learning empathy to a new level.

The Goals of our Empathy Education Program are to:

  • Increase Empathy
  • Create an understanding of the benefits of sustainable community development
  • Develop confidence in a child's ability to make a change happen
  • Develop cultural competence
