Global Empathy Education Program
In Charlotte, TLP’s Global Empathy Education Program fosters empathy in children by using The Lunch Program as a model to teach kids about cultural similarities and differences, how to problem solve, and how to put their empathy into action in a culturally sensitive way to make a difference in the world. Raising empathetic and culturally sensitive children will no doubt transform our communities from within.
